Wilbur E. Lucas Elementary understands parental involvement is a crucial component to the success of a child's educational achievement. Parents are the child's most important teacher. Research has proven that children are more successful learners when their parents are actively involved in their learning, both at home and at school. To support parents as partners, we encourage families to be involved in their child's educational process. Wilbur E. Lucas Elementary offers an open-door policy, allowing parents to visit and participate inn our programs, fostering a sense of openness and inclusion.
Parents are encouraged to be a part of their child's education. One way of doing that, is to attend parent workshops. These classes are designed to help parents with issues ranging from child rearing to the education of their child. To request a specific class topic, contact our Parental Involvement Coordinator, Mrs. Laura Reyna. Other events such as Family Nights provide opportunities for the parents and students to work together as they complete current educational activities. Teachers are also available at these events to assist or answer questions.
Being a volunteer is another way of being involved in a child's education. We encourage family and community involvement. All volunteers are required to fill complete a background check at the district's Personnel Office.
Wilbur E. Lucas Elementary is a Title I school and we are required to involve parents in the annual review of the campus Parent Involvement Policy and School Parent Compact as well as provide input on how Title I Parent Involvement Funds are spent.
