Join the PTA


If your child's school isn't affiliated with the PTA (National Parent Teacher Association), it probably has a "home and school" or a booster club (independently operated clubs that function the same as the PTA, just without the national recognition).

Joining your local group will help you network with other parents, get to know your child's teachers, and will allow you to stay up-to-date on everything that is going on at the school.
