Garapan school: More parents attending PTSA

GARAPAN Elementary School’s Mega Skills and Skills and Expected School-wide Learning Results or ESLR programs not only promote good behavior in its students, but have also encouraged more parents to attend PTSA meetings, GES vice principal Derwin Johnson said.

“At PTSA meetings, we are giving awards to two students in every classroom who have displayed behavior skills,” Johnson said.

“It was hard to get participation from the parents in the past. But we have a large number of parents coming to the meetings now because they want to see their kids getting these awards,” he added.

The Mega Skills and the ESLR programs were initiated by the PTSA to recognize those students who display good behavior.

“We need to recognize our kids for their efforts, besides just learning — the little things that make the difference in becoming role models and in becoming responsible people,” Johnson said in an earlier interview.

At the award ceremony, “the kids are happy and proud of what they have achieved, and the parents are all smiling and proud of their kids’ achievement,” he added.

For November, the GES awarded the following students who displayed confidence:
