“Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
The Parenting Program is a hallmark of Trinity Christian School, a concept that has been foundational since the inception of the school. It is our belief-- that though parents are to be the primary teachers and role models for their children-- our role as a school is to go beside them in support and love. We do so by offering parenting classes and the opportunity for parents to observe in the classroom.
Yearly Parenting Requirements
Parents are required to attend a parent orientation class, held during the first week of each new school year. This class overviews new rules and regulations, as well as provides information about the parent/student handbook, master calendar, parenting, introduction to staff, and other pertinent information for a successful school year.
One parenting class per semester must be attended by the parents of enrolled students, with the goal of improving the lives of the school’s families. Parenting classes offer both a grade specific class and another class on parenting issues, marriage and/or family topics. Parents may choose which classes to attend.
Parents are also required to attend one hour of classroom observation per semester of their student(s). This serves to ensure that parents are aware of their students’ progress, as well as how their child interacts in the classroom with both their peers and teacher. Each parent is expected to observe for only one hour each semester.
