Get Involved!Research shows that the number one indicator of a child’s success in school is parent involvement. Involvement includes simple things like attending conferences, checking grades on Parent Portal, providing a quiet study location, having family dinners, and discussing your child’s day. There are also many opportunities to get involved here at Prairie View. Most are one-time events, fundraisers or even in your child's classroom, averaging a one to two-hour commitment.CLICK HERE for Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities.Parent Liaisons - Becca Pakter & Alissa Ostroot
