Schuylerville Offers Parent Today Email Newsletter and Companion Website

By Staff Report | Education
SCHUYLERVILLE—Schuylerville Central School District is encouraging parents to sign up for Parent Today, a bimonthly e-newsletter that provides tools and information to encourage parents to be even more engaged in their children’s education. The e-newsletter is provided free of charge by the school district and includes access to a companion website with archived articles. Dozens of studies since 1960 have confirmed the positive link between parental involvement and students’ improved performance in school. Parent Today offers simple strategies and tools that parents can use at home to help their children make huge strides in the classroom. The e-newsletter addresses four “chapters” of a child’s life—early learning, elementary school, the middle years and high school—with stories about what is happening in the classroom and students’ lives. The companion website offers resources to subscribing families that encourage parents to be more fully engaged in their children’s academic life. Schuylerville residents who are interested in subscribing can sign up at Click on “Subscribe now” at the top left of the page to create a user profile. The user will be asked to fill in his/her name and e-mail address and to select a password. Then choose the home school district from the drop-down menu and enter the district-specific “ID.” This five-digit number for Schuylerville is 12871.
