Sherrod parents are encouraged to be involved in their child’s education. While some parents can only be involved in working with their child at home: checking backpacks for notes, going over school papers, and reading with their child, others may want to become involved directly on the school campus. Listed below are some but not all opportunities available for parental involvement.
