Introduction

Our Parent Involvement department focuses on supporting our parents and families with opportunities to build strong relationships, enhance skills, learn new things, and so much more. According to an article by waterford.org, “When parents and teachers work together to establish a thriving classroom, the effect on their students is profound. Students with engaged parents don’t just have high test scores: their attendance, self-esteem, and graduation rate rise, too.” [View the article here] Salinas City Elementary School District focuses on building strong parent communities, as well as, equip our families with the tools and knowledge to be successful.
