What is Be There?

WTVM is partnering with the Muscogee County School District to share Extraordinary Teachable moments through the Be There parent involvement campaign. Share your teachable moment with us -- click here, print the form and submit it to your child's school.

Be There
is a multi-media national parent involvement campaign that is sweeping the country.  It is not a program or curriculum.

It is designed to inspire parents to be actively involved in their child's education and learning experiences, whether they are at school, at home, in the park, at the mall, at an event, or shopping. 

The campaign focuses on little reminders that there are teachable moments all around us, even for those parents whose schedules may not permit them to be at a school event or extra-curricular activity during the course of the school day or after school. 

Be There is a campaign that inspires adults to make ordinary moments extraordinary by encouraging parents to engage with their children during the daily routines of life and by doing so, they'll discover that teachable moments are everywhere.
