We are busy preparing to welcome students in grades 1-12 back to school on August 30 and welcome our new kindergarten students on September 1.
Families often ask me what they can do to help their children do their very best. Families play a critical role in their child’s academic progress. You can help your child prepare to learn each day.
• Help your child get ready in the morning so he or she arrives on time and ready to learn.
• Ask your child what he or she learns in school each day.
• Set aside time each night to help your child with his or her homework.
• Visit the open house at your child’s school before the first day. Your child will come to school confident and eager to succeed.
We are working hard to make every school a great school. That means every classroom has an effective teacher, every school has a strong principal and every staff member shares the same high expectations for all students. How will we make that happen? We have a plan to deliver on this promise and it starts with clear priorities.
