Educating Parents

Make sure mom and dad know about K-Kids

Educating parents about the K-Kids program is always a good idea. Let them know about the K-Kids website page for parents, but you may also want to host an informational meeting, giving parents a chance to ask questions or even volunteer!  

     Website page for parents   

Parent educational meeting resources

When speaking to parents, provide them with information about both the Kiwanis club and the K-Kids club, including meeting times and locations. You'll also want to distribute contact information for the Kiwanis advisor and the faculty advisor. 

This is a perfect time to ask if someone might be interested in serving as a K-Kids parent advisor.  A parent advisor serves as a liaison between the K-Kids club and the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) or Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The parent advisor also helps with club projects.

Remember to keep parents informed about what the K-Kids club is doing during the year. Send home updates and invite parents to participate in one ore more service projects.
