Ferriday Jr. High learning program offered to parents

FERRIDAY — Parents of Ferriday Junior High School students are invited to attend an evening of learning and fun hosted by the school’s English Language Arts and Social Studies departments.

The event is schedule from 4 to 6 p.m. Jan. 27 at the school and will offer parents a little insight about how to help their kids with schoolwork.

“This evening will give our parents an opportunity to take a look at the educators’ approaches to the English and social studies curriculums at Ferriday Junior High School,” principal Phyllis Cage said. “During the evening, parents will receive hands-on activities to use at home to assist their children with basic concepts in these subjects.”

Cage said the reason the school is hosting the event is to get more parents involved in their children’s schoolwork.

“We want to bring parents into the school so they can understand what is going on in the classrooms,” she said. “There is going to be information on classroom and standardized testing and information on what their children are studying in class.”

Cage said teachers will be preparing mini-lessons for parents to participate in, and will also provide information on how to help children study.

Cage said she will be at the event, and parents who have any questions can ask her at the school.

“When we have projects like these, it is our way to have parents come to us on a positive note, and not about disciplinary action,” she said. “I know some parents have issues coming to the school, but this is a way to help their child, and we hope they come out.”

Students will also get extra credit on schoolwork if their parents attend, Cage said.

“This is a fun way for parents to get involved in their child’s education,” she said. “We can help parents, and the parents can help us. This is another way for us to communicate better with each other.”
