Beyond the Bake Sale

The Essential Guide to Family-School Partnerships

by Anne T. Henderson, Karen L. Mapp, Vivian R. Johnson, and Don Davies
For Middle Level

Countless studies demonstrate that students with parents actively involved in their education at home and school are more likely to earn higher grades and test scores, enroll in higher-level programs, graduate from high school, and go on to post-secondary education.  Written with candor, clarity, and humor, Beyond the Bake Sale is packed with tips from principals and teachers, checklists, and an invaluable resource section about how to build strong collaborative relationships and offers practical advice for improving interactions between parents and teachers.
