You are your child's first and most important teacher. Parents are valued partners in the Petal School District, where we believe that successful learning is best achieved through collaborative partnerships with parents, families, positive adult and student role models and all sectors of the broader community. By sharing your time, talents and resources, you will help us help your child.  In addition to the resources found on this site, parents are encouraged to contact their child's teachers and school office for more information and partner opportunities.

    Petal School District Core Belief:


    “Family is the most important influence in the development of the individual”

    Recognizing the importance of parents’ involvement in their children’s education, this section is designed to link families with resources that are available for everyone in the Petal community. 



    When parents are involved in their children’s education at home, they do better in school.  When parents are involved in school, children go farther in school – and the schools they go to are better.
