Title: Increasing the Attendance of Grade IV Parents in School Meetings and Other School Activities in Unson Elementary School, District of Pagsanjan, Division of Laguna During the School Year 2011-2012.

Unson Elementary School, the first barrio school in the town of Pagsanjan is situated in Cabanbanan, Pagsanjan, Laguna.

It is also tested that pupils whose parents usually involved in school activities tend to perform better and that they are not and they do not become the problem children in the school, they are the pupils who regularly attend classes, settled well in school and excel in class. I strongly trust that parents’ participation in school will become groundwork of pupils to become more responsible person of the future. For these reasons, parental involvement should...
