NAAPID Parent Invovement Day - 2/14 - All Day - All Parents Invited

Dear MLK School Parents,

All parents are invited to be a part of King’s plans as we observe National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) on Monday, February 14, 2011. 

What is NAAPID?

NAAPID - "Take Your Child to School/Visit Your Child in School" Day

NAAPID is a national call to action to get all parents, but particularly those of African American children, more involved in the education of their children. It is expected that this national observation will open up dialogue among teachers, parents, and students, which will lead to a more conducive learning environment for all students.

What happens during NAAPID?
Parents are invited to be a part of the school day at King.  This includes being a part of your child’s classes—even the noon hour.  You might want to bring a sack lunch and be a part of the excitement!  Also, the King staff will set up a hospitality table with refreshments.  Please stop by and enjoy the treats!

Also, at 2:00 PM, there will be an all-school assembly called Jazzistry with Ann Arbor’s own Vincent York, who happens to be the father of King fourth grade teacher Cedric York!  It is going to be an exciting and educational presentation.   

We hope to see many, many families at King School on February 14.

Kevin Karr and the King School NAAPID Committee
