The Best Teacher? You. Get Involved
Reading or speaking to your child — even 20 minutes a day — can improve academic skills and raise IQ scores.
Studies have shown that parents who volunteer at their child's school are more likely to have successful kids.
Research has found that parents partnering with teachers — helping with homework and attending parent-teacher conferences — leads to better prepared students.

LeConte in the News
When LeConte Elementary School students come back to school Sept. 2, they will have a brand new garden—one that is drought resistant, saves water and attracts plenty of butterflies.
Last fall, a group of LeConte parents got together to redesign the school’s front yard. Help arrived in the form of volunteers, a large number of donated materials, a $2,500 donation from the LeConte Parent Teacher Association—and a $5,000 grant from the home improvement chain Lowe’s.
