Parent Involvement and Student Achievement

The significant relationship between parent involvement and student achievement is well documented. Research shows that when parents are involved with their children's education, students earn better grades, score higher on standardized tests, have better attendance records and show a more positive attitude toward school.

At KMS, it is our vision to be "a place with heart that challenges and strengthens the mind, body, and spirit." The positive culture we promote here at school is just one aspect of your child's adolescent experience. We value the connection between home and school, and the contributions of you, our valued parents and families!

We are committed to making each day a positive learning experience for your child and invite you to become a part of the process!

Being involved in your child's education is easy-
  • Make it a priority that your child attends school every day and on time.
  • Check daily that your child completes his or her homework.
  • Periodically check your child's backpack and school planner, to keep abreast of announcements, assignments, due dates, etc. 
  • Contact teachers and/or counselors when you are concerned or have a question about your child.
  • Encourage reading at home!
  • Limit your child's TV and video game time.
  • Make sure your child is well rested.
  • Provide a study space and have basic school supplies/materials on hand.
  • Whenever possible, provide learning opportunities for your child.
  • Volunteer in the class or at school events whenever you are available!
