Parent Involvement

  • The staff and administration at Tumbleweed welcome your involvement and participation in your child’s education. We believe you are your child’s first and most important teacher. We realize that your life is busy. However, we provide many ways for you to be involved, and you will find many great rewards.

    1. Read to your child every day. Reading is not limited to the young child. Reading to an older child lets him or her know how important reading is to you and to his or her success.

    2. Make sure your child comes to school every day and that he or she is on time. Setting the habit of coming to school must be done from kindergarten.

    3. Attend parent/teacher conferences. Two days have been set aside during each semester for conferences. Our staff will accommodate your needs at other times if additional conferences are needed.

    4. Attend school events with your child. There are several schoolwide and classroom events throughout the school year. We hope you will share as many of these as possible with your child.

    5. Read and discuss communications with your child. Every Wednesday, your child will bring home a special communications folder. All flyers, newsletters and other information from the school will be in this folder.

    Other Ways to Get Involved

    You are always invited to eat lunch with your child. Adult lunches are available at a minimal cost.
