Parent and family engagement is linked to children’s success in school and beyond. As parents and families of TIS children, there are many ways for you to become involved and stay engaged in the program, and in your children’s education and future. We value parents and know that ultimately you will have the biggest impact on your child as their first teacher.
Studies find that students with involved parents are more likely to:
- Have better social skills, show good behavior and adapt well to school
- Attend school regularly
- Earn higher grades and test scores
- Pass their classes, earn credits and are promoted
- Graduate and go on to further education

Let us know. We’d love to help you get plugged in.
There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer at TIS. Volunteering offers a huge resource and support base for the school community while showing their kids the importance of participating in the larger community.
By interacting with teachers, administrators, and other parents on a regular basis, you'll gain a firsthand understanding of your child's daily activities. You'll also tap into trends and fads of school life that can help you communicate with your kids as they grow and change (all without intruding on their privacy or personal space).
Here are some of the ways a parent volunteer can help:
- help organize, cater, or work at fundraising activities
- help to plan and chaperone in-school events
- organize or assist with a specific club or interest group
- assist coaches and gym teachers with sports and fitness programs
- sew costumes or build sets for theatrical and musical productions
- help out with visual arts, crafts, and design courses and projects
- hold a workshop for students in trade or technical programs
- volunteer to speak in the classroom or at a career day
- supervise or judge experiments at a science fair
