Family Involvement

Ways to get involved at Patrick Henry:

  1. Read our Patrick Henry Parent Handbook, and then discuss it with your child.  Keep up those conversations with your child after school starts.  Always remind your child about the importance of school and the future:  college and beyond.

  2. Encourage and insist that your child take advantage of our many clubs, activities, and sports.  We have outstanding coaches and extraordinary students on those teams.  Our students need that welcoming feeling of being on a team, having fun and making memories that will last a lifetime.  Most of our students that play a sport earn a varsity letter. Remind your students that high school opportunities like this come around just once in their lifetime.

  3. Communicate with us.  You have a wealth of knowledge about your child that can help us.  We appreciate all parent communications and hope that you will call, visit, or email your child’s Small Learning Center Coordinator and teachers.  Sign up for a daily email newsletter that will keep you in touch with everything that’s happening here at Patrick Henry. Become familiar with the Parent Portal to review your child’s transcript, daily attendance and academic progress.

  4. Volunteer.  The best way to ensure that your child succeeds here is to frequently visit us and be visible.  Our Volunteer Coordinator, Quinton Bonds (668.1932) can get you started on any number of small tasks that you can help us to raise the spirit of our school.  We are also in need of help with our Booster Club, Student Council and other after school activities.

  5. Partner with Patrick Henry in the direction of this school.  We have a variety of ways that we actively listen to parents including: Site Council, Principal/Parent Luncheons, and periodic meetings specifically designed to help parents with the business of parenting a teenager.
