Engaged Parents = Student Success


Here at Wellspring, we recognize the importance of parents' involvement in their children's educations, and invite them to get involved in any way they can. Our teachers consider it one of their primary functions to develop a strong working relationship with their students' families, with the understanding that education is best when it is a partnership among the important people in a child's life.

Change.org reports that the Illinois Parent Information Resource Center has developed an arts-based, community centered approach to parent involvement in their children's education.


Parents are universally accepted as a child’s first teacher. It’s intuitive, and we usually know it from our own experience. Schools that embrace this reality and recognize the important role parents play in their child’s education are better able to create curriculum and build relationships with parents that have a profound effect on a child’s journey through school.
