National Parents’ Day: July 26
Finally, a day to celebrate parents of all kinds! It takes a certain willingness to choose to become a parent; a knowing that the life you are living will be forever changed. And the parents in Forney ISD are a pretty special collection. Now, we have all chuckled over the memes that showcase the “types” of parents that come through the pick-up line at school, the class parties, the sporting events, the daily office visits for forgotten supplies and lunches. However, the important thing to remember is that these parents show up for their kids because they take the “parent” job seriously.
The schools in the district for the most part all have a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) on their campus that is comprised of parents who have the opportunity to do a little extra for their children’s school. These volunteers help out the teachers and staff tremendously by making copies, helping during lunch, going on field trips, and fundraising for the extras they see that are needed. In fact, last fall when the Adopt-a-Grant program was launched, Johnson Elementary PTO adopted several grants for their campus. This was a win-win for the school and for the Forney Education Foundation since that action allowed FEF to fund more grants.
