We understand the importance of involving parents in children’s activities as well as school-parent communication as highlighted in this edition and we have made updates to SAFSMS Parent portal and SMS feature to reflect that. We would also like to appreciate our SAFSMS schools of the month for actively using SAFSMS as we continue to provide efficient support. Enjoy.

SAFSMS School of the Month
‘SAFSMS School of the month’ highlights the top schools with the highest SAFSMS use monthly!
Importance of Parental Involvement in School Activities
Successful parent-school partnerships are not stand-alone, add-on programs. Instead, they are well integrated with the school’s overall mission. Typically, quality programs are developed in collaboration with parents and reflect their needs and interests. Offering multiple opportunities to hear information go a long way toward expressing a school’s genuine interest in parent input.
Successful parent-involvement programs typically develop in response to a specific need in the school or its community. A strategy that works in one school might not be the best choice for another. For instance, while a primary school in Abuja might establish a Parent Mentor program in which parents are designated to contact other families to tell them about school activities, another school in the same city might begin a program that allows parent volunteers to earn points toward rewards such as computers and other educational materials.
