A Culture of Excellence

This week, I am highlighting how we communicate with parents.  From the feedback I have received, parents would like to know more about the learning objectives for their children.  I am working with the teachers this week on how we can effectively communicate what students are learning and how they are progressing in class.  Research indicates parent involvement is a key factor in a student’s success in school.  You can read more here regarding the impact of parent involvement.  This school year, we are striving to create a strong partnership between parents and school staff because together we are better!
