The future of family outreach.
Android and iOS mobile apps
Parent Parties ENGAGE, available in English and Spanish, is an app and in-school program designed to increase parent and family engagement. This mobile app provides a new educational topic each month that will include a video and activities that allow parents to score points for their participation. Administrators are able to export Federal Programs statistical requirements quickly and easily and customize activities and evaluations. Premium users have access to a growing video library and access to the curriculum of the original Parent Parties program that has been used in over 1,300 schools in 29 states. Parent Parties ENGAGE strives to encourage parents to be involved in their children’s education.
“We’ve spent 30+ years working with schools and parents to develop a content plan that delivers results for parent engagement. Each month a new topic is presented for parents to explore. They will earn points as they participate in the activities.
During this time, when it is difficult to have Parent Parties or parent workshops in our schools, it is our hope that Parent Parties ENGAGE will provide a new future for you to continue to reach parents and encourage them to stay engaged in their children’s education.”

Years of Experience
Keep parents engaged
Leaderboard system, prizes, and push notifications
Parents compete monthly with other parents from each grade, or the entire school, by completing the app activities to become the top scorer of the group. You can evaluate winners and choose to recognize top scorers by providing prizes or other recognition monthly or at the end of the semester or school year.
A push notification is sent to parents every Thursday providing a weekly scorecard so parents can self-evaluate their own parent engagement efforts. It will let them see how well they are doing at getting their children to school on time, reading with their children, checking to make sure children complete their homework or other positive parenting actions.
Another push notification provides a monthly evaluation of the app theme where participants can score the video and activities provided that month, leave comments and even suggest future topics.
Premium plan users can customize activities, scorecards, and evaluations. The in-school Parent Parties curriculum will be provided to premium users so schools can choose to supplement the virtual content with parent parties.
Examples of mobile app activities we've created for parents.
Parents watch a short video for tips about the monthly topic and answer a short question for points.
Parents earn points by answering trivia questions related to the monthly topic.
Parents can participate in suggested activities at home that reinforce the monthly theme. They can upload pictures for points.
Parents can follow online story links to read books with their children. They can earn one point per day for reading.
Schools can add their own videos, activities, files, and assign points to reward parents for viewing. *Premium plan only

Finding ways to connect with parents is a challenge. Meetings are not always convenient and newsletters often go unread. The Engage App is a simple and effective way to connect to parents on their terms. Parents enjoy interacting with the app and by doing so they strengthen their parenting skills and the school community. It’s a win-win!Cate DeFiore

As a principal, I have chosen to use Parent Parties in more than one school over many years. This educational program reaches parents while saving hours of planning time and providing valuable analytics for reporting.Dawn Ashley

What I like most about the app are the links to the stories I can read to my kids and the many activities we can do at home. I really like the ideas and resources I get from the app.Juana Mendoza

We love Parent Parties. It is a great way to get parents involved. We have used this program for five years and our parents enjoy it. We’re “Off to a Good Start” as we transition from Headstart to Kindergarten.Connie Bass
