Parental Involvement

You are your child's first teacher. Parents

We encourage you to read to your child every night, talk about the different parts of their day, and assist with homework. Your child's teacher will also provide enrichment opportunities to involve you in your child's learning.

Studies show a direct correlation between a child's success at school and parental involvement.  When we resume in-person learning, there will be opportunities for involvement throughout the year such as parent-teacher conferences, family fun nights, having lunch with us, spending time in the class to see how we learn, and field trips!
