Ways to Help

Parent Resource Center

Welcome to the ADE Parent Resource Center.  As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher and an advocate for his/her education.  It is the goal of this website to support you as you look holistically at your child’s literacy education.  On this website, you will find tools to promote a culture of reading in the home as well as guidance and resources for meeting the literacy needs of your child.  Below are three icons which link to information that will help you to better understand what your child is learning in school and address their learning needs. You may also click on How do I know if my child is a struggling reader? What is my child Learning at school? and How can I help my child at home?
