Okay a new that can keep parents and teachers in sync is pretty darn cool. I dont remember having this when i was a kid. This would be a great tool to use with parents connecting with the teachers because you really want that parent involvement in the students education as much as you can. This article is great because it shows you how to use the app and how it is going to help you in the classroom i am going to book mark this article for when i become a teacher.

This is encouraging to hear how schools try to reach out and build positive relationships with parents. If there was a way to encourage empolyers to give incentives that would be even more exciting.

Health is so important to a young child's growth! Being healthy affects almost all types of development and so parents should try their best to feed children healthy, fun, meals.
Katiebelle Wheelock's comment, May 8, 2013 7:11 PM
Learning healthy habits at a young age is of the utmost importance because those ideas will transfer into how they choose to eat and be active in future years. At a young age children do not have much control over what they eat so parents are responsible for recognizing the importance of health education so they can instill healthy lifestyles in their children. Great article!

I had one of these boards in my classroom late in high school! I think this is so great that not only is technology being introduced at high school, but at younger ages too. Parent involvement is crucial but also extremely difficult. This is such a huge step in the direction of progress allowing parents to be so easily accesible in order to benefit their children's education.

I really like this chart. Unfortunately, most of the parents that I have come across in my volunteering would be considered "Outsiders". Parents need to take just as much part in their childs education as much as they expect teachers to. Thanks!

It is extremely important for parents to be involved in their child's education. Sometimes it is difficult for parents to be in the classroom as they may work or have prior commitments, but there are all different ways for them to contribute outside as well. Students will see their parents contributing and will want to do well in school because of their parents' involvement. It also allows for better communication between parents and teachers.

I agree that it is a good way to have teachers and parents on the same page. Having parent involvement can help run a classroom more easily and can help with trust issues between the parent and the teacher. It can also bring in a special touch to the class and make kids feel at home.
