Looking for a Parent Involvement Quote

We are getting ready for the beginning of the school year and are putting together our bulletin board - we want to put on a quote about the importance of parent involvement. Does anyone have a good one?

Thanks!

The child's first and most influential teacher is the parent.

A child's ideas about education and its significance begin with the parent.

Improving the effectiveness of the home as a learning environment is critical to promoting long-term school success.

( I did not write down the author when I found these quotes. sorry)

Parent involvement in education is like the frosting on a cupcake, it makes it complete and oh so sweet.

Education is like a baseball game, it needs all its players: parent, teacher, community, and student.
