Parental Involvement Policy

Open House

Parents and students have an opportunity before school starts to visit the school campus as well as meet their teachers.

 

Parent/Teacher Conference

There will be two conferences held during the 2018-2019 school term. Each teacher will meet with the parents individually to discuss testing information pertaining to their student, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. They will also make sure that parents are aware of other information located in parent/teacher conference forms provided by the parish.

 

Reading Family Night

During the month of December, LaSalle Junior High will host a Reading Family Night. The staff will provide reading activities for parents and students to share. In addition to activities, parents will be given the opportunity to purchase quality reading materials for their students.

 

Parent Expo

The parish will host a district wide Parent Expo in January 2019. Vendors from the area and organizations offered serviced to parents and students will have booths set up to disperse information and educate parents and students on their services.

 

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Teachers at LaSalle Jr. High will arrange individual meeting with parents for a second time during February. These meetings will provide the teachers with an opportunity to discuss with parents the promotion requirements for all students. The teachers will then discuss each student’s progress and needed points for promotion. They will also offer suggestions for improvement to the parents.

Sixth Grade Orientation

Parents and students have the opportunity to visit with the school, be given information about the sixth grade, meet the teachers and be informed of things they need to work on before they enter the sixth grade. This ensures a great transition from elementary school to junior high for incoming sixth graders.

 

Parent Notification

Family nights will be announced by use of flyers, website postings, email, and school sign. Classroom teachers will provide verbal reminders prior to the activity date. Parents are also notified if teachers have concerns over a student’s academic progress, excessive absences, or discipline matters. Parents also have access to our parish’s Parent Command Center, which allows a parents to access their student’s grades, attendance, discipline, etc.

 

Other Parental Involvement Opportunities

Parents also have many other opportunities to be involved in their child’s educational experience at LaSalle Junior High School. We have good attendance for athletic events, open house, talent show and awards day at LaSalle Junior High School. Parents also participated in Teacher Appreciation Week at LaSalle Junior High. Parents of 8th graders attend a high school scheduling meeting at LaSalle High School during the month of May to assist in scheduling their student for 9th grade classes.
