Students and Families

Parent Teacher Partnership

The Rowe Elementary School Parent-Teacher-Partnership exists not as a policy‐making committee, but rather as a support system for the Rowe School family. The support system includes volunteers such as resource parents and other community resources, sponsors for enrichment and school spirit activities and a source of communication and feedback between the staff and parents.

Specific Goals of the Rowe School PTP:

Fundraising for at least three enrichment programs each year.

Finding each classroom a resource and room parent.

Researching areas for enrichment (people and activities) to enhance the curriculum.

Taking advantage of programs run by area businesses.

Taking part in region‐wide fundraising (e.g. Mary Lyon Foundation).

Showing appreciation to staff and students at appropriate times during the year.

Involving at least one staff member at all meetings.

Offering at least one support workshop for parents per year.
