Parent Today 

Port Byron offers Parent Today e-mail newsletter

Port Byron Central School District is encouraging parents to sign up for Parent Today, a free, opt-in e-mail newsletter that is delivered to subscribers' inboxes each month.

Through easy-to-read blog-style posts, Parent Today addresses important, age-appropriate topics and offers accessible, easy-to-implement strategies. It also provides information to help families understand the dramatic changes taking place in school curriculum and public education.

Parent Today is packed with research-based information that empowers parents and supports teachers. Parent Today addresses four "chapters" of a child's life - early learners, elementary school, the middle years and high school - with stories about what is happening in the classroom and students' lives. Its companion website offers resources to subscribing families that encourage parents to be more fully engaged in their child's academic life.

Research has shown that engaged parents have a positive effect on their children's school success in terms of attendance, attitudes toward school and homework, grades, and expectations for the future.
 
Parent Today is provided free of charge to Port Byron families. Subscribers must have Internet access and an e-mail address to receive the monthly newsletters.
