    Volunteers are always welcome at Lakewood Tech EQ.  Research shows that engagement in a student’s education increases academic achievement. There are many ways to be engaged in a child's education.  One way is to volunteer. 
     
    Your teacher can give you information on the many areas of need for parent volunteerism. Please fill out volunteer form and review our Volunteer Guidelines, please click on the link below. Parents and other visitors MUST sign in and get a badge before going to a classroom.
     
     
    • Make it a point to know the staff members at school.
    • Attend conferences with your child's teacher.
    • Keep a school file for each child, including medical records, pictures, fingerprints, and report cards. You may wish to add other pertinent information.
    • Encourage and Nurture Your Child
    • Treat your child with respect.
    • Build self-esteem. Concentrate on the positive and recognize your child's efforts, not just his accomplishments. Be your child's cheerleader as often as you are his/her coach.
    • Recognize your child as an individual and avoid comparisons with other children. Cultivate and appreciate your child's strengths.
    • Read to your child and with your child. Let your child see you read.
    • T alk with your child about daily activities.
    • Keep your child healthy with proper diet, rest, and exercise. ( See 5-2-1-0 Guidelines for healthy habits)
    • Have your child's vision and hearing examined annually or as recommended by your child's physician.
    • Set standards for your child. Children count on caring adults to set limits for them.
