A New Era In Education

Under a 1984 law, all school districts in Missouri provide assistance for parents and children before kindergarten.

This new law recognizes that children learn more during the preschool years than at any other time in life.

By offering parent-child programs through public schools, Missouri is leading the nation in the effort to improve children's language, social and intellectual, and physical development.

You can join the more than 50,000 families now taking part in this effort to improve educational opportunities for all children.

**As a parent, you are your child's first and most influential teacher!**

Give your child the best possible start in life.

Call the Marshall Public School District today to enroll in Parents As Teachers.

The Parents As Teachers Program is Free and Voluntary
