American Promise : Helping Black Boys Excel in School
Visit Your Son’s School
Parents of the most successful kids visit their child’s school eight times a year, albeit parent-teacher conferences, science fairs, field trips, band concerts or sports games. Make your presence known and let your son’s teachers and principle know that education matters. If you cannot physically be there, make sure you are communicating with them via email and phone.
