Meisler Middle Parent/Teacher Club

  • Become a member of the Parent/Teacher Club. Volunteering to work in the classroom, chaperoning field trips, and assisting with many activities, are just a few things that you can do to make a difference. If you’d like to be more involved in your child’s education, we welcome your participation. Please call us at (504) 888-5832 and speak to one of our administrators.

    Parent involvement is a very important aspect of every child’s education and is the primary factor in a students’ success in school. There are many ways in which you can participate in your child’s education:

    • Communicate high expectations about work ethic and education.
    • Demonstrate enthusiasm and participate in their school activities and the educational process.
    • Monitor their progress. Encourage and support. Work with the school, teachers, counselor and principal.
    • Spend some time every day actively listening without criticism to what the kids have to say.
    • Tell them that you love them and hold them accountable for their decisions. Let them know up-front the positive and negative consequences certain behavior will result in.
    • Read to them. Have them read to you. This provides time together, reading practice and language background.
    • Reinforce learning at home.
    • Support them in their activities including homework, sports and dealing with life experiences.
    • Provide structure for time spent at home which ensures appropriate time for sleep and study.
    • Have your child sit down with you and establish a time schedule for study and to get everything ready for school the next day and place it by the door.
    • Every day when your child comes home from school, talk with him/her. Ask what he has done for the day.
