Additional information May be obtained from the City Parks and recreation department. Will be conducted twice weekly after school hours for parents. These sessions will cover the same material the children of the parents Are getting during the school Haywood said. The idea behind the classes for the parents is that they will be Able to rein Force the work of the teacher miss Jac Queline Garner supervisor of instruction for elementary schools said last week. And just the fact that the parents Are interested enough in what their child is doing to attend the instruction will mean a lot to the she added. Haywood said that the location of the sessions for parents and exact Lime will be determined later after it is Learned How Many parents Are interested in participating and where they live. It May be that All of the sessions will be centralized in one or two locations or they May be conducted at each of the schools he said. At any rate transportation will be provided for parents to attend the sessions. Haywood conceded that convincing the parents that the sessions will Benefit them and their children will re quire a Selling Job but he believes the response will be Good. Haywood also concedes that if All the eligible parents take advantage of the offer some scrambling would have to be done to find instructors and to sup port the project. But we re not going to turn anyone away. Well find some Way to serve them if they Are he Saiof. In addition to the sessions at school the parental assistance will involve Home visits in some cases Haywood said. U is hoped that m addition to the children already in school that younger Brothers and Sisters will become belter prepared for formal school training he said impetus for the parental involvement Cornes from the growing realization that at least a major part of the problem of children who do poorly in school Sterns from the Lack of ability of parents to help their children both irom a motivation standpoint and from a Lack of skills in assisting with lessons High Point Enterprise sunday morning july 18, 1976 Page 2a City area monday last Day registration of voters shows election interest by Lee Mortimer Enterprise staff writer workers at the county Board of elections office in High Point have been very Busy but extremely pleased at the interest shown among local voters in the upcoming primary elections.
