Hello, I am Lathyrell Howard, Glyndale's Parent Involvement Coordinator (PIC). My job is you the parent/family or guardian.  Here are some of the ways I can assist you:

  • keep you informed of events and volunteer opportunities
  • answer any questions you may have
  • assist and encourage you with your child's learning experiences

Being involved in your child's education is one of the most important things you can do. Research has shown children with involved parents are more successful in school.  Part of this is the positive impression it makes on your child that you care and are involved in their education.  Involvement means many things. 

At school it can be:

  • communicating with your child's teacher
  • attending school activities
  • volunteering

At home it can be:

  • talking with your child about their day at school
  • having a daily routine for homework
  • a time for reading
  • checking book bags for important papers and having a special place for book bags  

You are your child's first and foremost teacher.  Let me assist you in finding the resources and materials you need to engage your child in a lifelong journey of learning. Following are just a few of the resources we have in the Family Resource Center.

  • Flashcards
  • Bingo games
  • Puzzles
  • Books
  • Phonics & math manipulatives
  • Parenting guides

Please visit the Family Resource Center and see how learning can be fun and rewarding.  We are located at the front of the building by the Main Office.  Hours are 7:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Thursday; 7:30 am to 3:00 pm on Friday.

 Your help is needed in the following ways:

  • Classroom - read to the class or individual; help the teacher
  • Media center - shelve books, prepare books for check out, Book Fairs
  • Front office - make copies, answer telephone, greet parents, etc.
  • Parent Involvement Coordinator - prepare for events, file, etc.
  • Various activities throughout the year (Fall Festival, Field Day, Grandparents' Luncheon, Thanksgiving Feast, and others)


I look forward to meeting you and assisting you with your child's education.
