Today more than ever, it’s so important to be involved in a child’s education as well as staying connected and informed with your child’s school and teachers. However, staying on top of a child’s daily activities, lessons and homework is not always easy. It can be difficult to know exactly what your child is doing and how your child is doing day to day.
What if you had a virtual window into your child’s classroom with lessons, activities and even photos of your child’s day? A virtual window that would allow you to reinforce learning, help your child stay accountable and offer you a direct line to your child’s teachers and school?
This is possible with LivingTree and research has shown that students benefit from parent involvement in many ways.
Higher graduation rates
Less substance abuse
Less negative behavior
