Parent Involvement

We know that children's academic success is linked to family support. Joy Preparatory Academy warmly encourages family involvement at many levels. Parents and guardians are always welcome in our school - whether just dropping in, volunteering or participating in an activity. Families participate in school activities, decision making and culture.

Family involvement opportunities include:

  • Parent2Parent/PTO

  • Evening festivals/programs

  • Daily Recess Volunteers*

  • LINK mentoring program

  • Classroom volunteers

  • Fundraising

  • Student-led conferences

  • Class trip chaperones

  • Office volunteers

  • New parent orientation

  • Parent nights/open houses

Students with involved parents are more likely to:

  • attend school regularly

  • earn higher grades and test scores

  • have better social skills and improved behavior

  • be promoted, pass all their classes, and earn credits

  • graduate and go on to post-secondary education
