“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is positive involvement of parents” -Jane D. Hull
Parent and Family engagement is a crucial component to a child’s success in school. Our school’s offer many opportunities for parents and families to participate in school activities. Families also have an opportunity to engage with their school community every week during 40 minutes of parent engagement. During this time schools offer fun and interactive ways for families to apart of their child’s education and their school’s community!
