ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Teachers, students,  and Parents kicked off the holiday weekend on a loud note.

The I-Care program was kicked off at Sylvester Road Elementary in Albany. It's designed to help develop the character of students. It's aimed at getting parents involved in their children's education, one of the most important tools to make sure students are successful.

"That parental involvement basically gives our children the understanding that education is important," said I Care Coordinator Tameeka Daniels.

First Grade Teacher Lourie Bonner said, "It helps with the teaching process because when you re-enforce the skills at home and the things that we expect in the education realm, then it makes a world of different for the children."

Teachers also told us the more parents are involved in education, the more likely children are to advance to the next grade and graduate high school.
