In this course, we will cover the basic operating procedures for having a Family Fun Night at your school. Family Fun Nights are three-hour, high-energy events that can serve as a great way to introduce parents to their children’s teachers and school community members. Family Fun Nights are also effective in increasing parental engagement. Sometimes, parents are unfamiliar with school assignments. Family Fun Nights can increase their familiarity and confidence with class material by showing them how to help their children with homework and school assignments. A Family Fun Night can also help families learn about kinesthetic learning strategies which they may not have experienced prior to this event.
