How can parents be involved in the Middle School?
Young adolescents in Middle School sometimes say they don’t want their parents around anymore. What they say and what they need are sometimes entirely different things. Middle School Parents need to be involved in their students lives. We ask that you regularly check your students assignment notebooks, call or email teachers if you have questions, monitor (but don’t do) your childs homework, get to know your childs friends, and keep talking to your child.
There are official ways to get involved in the middle school. We ask for parent volunteers for a variety of activities throughout the school year. The development office at Minnehaha uses many parent volunteers in their fundraising activities. MAPT (Minnehaha Academy Parents Together) is the official parent organization of the Middle School. This organization supports a wide variety of activities in the Middle School.and MAPT representatives contact parents for a wide variety of volunteer opportunities.
