ISD 709 Parent Teacher Home Visit Program
Families at Lincoln Park Middle School, Myers-Wilkins, Stowe, Lowell and Piedmont Elementary Schools are invited to take part in this program which is intended to build positive relationships with families and to support students.
Parents and school staff come together, in a unique setting at your home or other location of your choice, to get to know one another and talk about your student’s future. Your student is also a part of this visit.
During the visit, time is taken to share your hopes and dreams for your child, experiences, and school resources. This is not a parent/teacher conference - it's meant to get to know each other and to build a positive relationship with each other, for the benefit of your student.
Studies show that this program helps increase student academic achievement and improves parent engagement in schools. It helps bring schools and families closer together and creates opportunities for better communication between home and school.
This is NOT a meeting to tell you what to do as a parent. This is a time to get to know you and your student away from school. This is also a time for you to get to know a member of our school community.
Please contact John Nachtsheim (218-336-8880 x3358) or Katie Oliver (218-336-8880 x3319) if you have any questions.
