The Importance of Parents in Education.
Research overwhelmingly underscores the importance of parent involvement in the success of students and of a school system as a whole. Parents and school staff form a team vital for the growth and development of children as they grow to happy and successful adults. We are thankful for the dedicated involvement of Greenon Local parents in the education process.
