Create enrichment opportunities for parents and students to connect with teachers around the building through informal settings like an evening of painting, dancing or even a school-wide book club.
Share research or student experiences that informed your idea!
I had the opportunity to host at "Paint with a Teacher Night" at a KIPP school where I used to be an administrator in the Fall. The parents, teachers, and students all had a blast and reported that they would love to continue to participate in enrichment events as such. The parents reported that they enjoyed seeing how their child interacted with the teacher and they felt empowered as well.
