Parent Today is a free e-mail newsletter and companion website designed to help build a stronger bridge between families and the classroom. Parent Today is packed with research-based information that empowers parents and supports teachers. Parent Today addresses four “chapters” of a child’s life – early learners, elementary school, the middle years and high school – with stories about what is happening in the classroom and students’ lives. The companion website offers resources to subscribing families that encourage parents to be more fully engaged in their child’s academic life.
