A note to parents on involvement

Parents, if you want your child to be more successful in school, become even more involved in their schooling. You can make a real difference for the good of your child. "When parents are involved in their children's educations at home, they do better in school.

The park's large pavilion was packed with parents, students, and yours truly all in anticipation of the yuletide music to come.
