Oradell, NJ — On November 20, 2014, the Huntington Learning Center will celebrate National Parental Involvement Day. Founded in 1995 by Project Appleseed, a nonprofit educational advocacy organization based in St. Louis, Missouri, National Parental Involvement Day honors and underscores the powerful contributions that parents and caregivers provide to support their students' success.
"Studies continue to show that parental involvement is one of the most consistent predictors of a child's academic achievement," says Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center. "Huntington is pleased to celebrate National Parental Involvement Day and promote to parents and our greater community the importance of being involved in our children's education and holding high expectations for our students."
The Huntington Learning Center will host a number of activities that encourage parents to be a part of their children's school and academic experience. In addition, Huntington offers free workshops for parents throughout the year on topics such as homework help, summer learning, SAT/PSAT/ACT exam prep and preparing students for a successful school year.
Huntington also offers parents a number of ideas to get involved in their child's education:

Lastly, Huntington reminds parents to make school a household priority. "Your role as a parent is to create and uphold a home environment that is conducive to learning and education," Huntington says. "Project Appleseed says that when parents are involved in children's learning in school and at home, schools work better and students flourish—and this is absolutely true. On National Parental Involvement Day and always, we encourage parents to seek ways to join their children's schools in giving students the best education possible."
