On Parent-Teacher Conference night parents have the opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher to discuss her his progress in the class. It is also an opportunity for volunteers to distribute educational informational flyers to parents. The informational flyers address Options for Life After HS as well as Questions to Ask Military Recruiters. In spite of the cold & wind that evening, volunteers were at 12 high schools throughout the 5 boroughs and distributed approximately 2,400 flyers.
Parents appreciated the information provided on each flyer. A thank you, a nod of acceptance, or question might be asked to the volunteers.
- A volunteer reports that several parents said ‘awesome’ when told what information the flyer was offering & the value of the information.
- Another volunteer noted that parents appeared glad to receive the information even those whose child was wearing JROTC uniform.
- One team notes that it was simply a great night for us – freezing cold and grateful kids.
To learn more about the action and to download the flyers go to our Counter Recruitment page. Scroll down to P-T night info and you can print a copy of the flyers. We will be back at the high schools in April for Spring Parent-Teacher Conference night, and hope you will join us then.
