I love the idea of Parent open house, parent topic nights and allowing the parents to network with one another, I think by letting the parents share on what topics they are interested in and help by inputting their interests it will help with participation. I liked the photo of the home that had the grouping of all their credentials and awards framed and hung together in an area where parents will see. By supporting peer relationships between the parents it will help build those bonds. I did gain several new ways to document childrens work. I love how Sarah shared her technology knowledge with us about using our iphone. I will be utilizing all of these new ideas!
