Parent and School Partnership
We are committed to working with families to help our students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Parents can contribute in numerous ways, including:
- Our goal is for students to not be absent more than 8 days in the school year.
- Making sure that homework is completed, including studying/reading for 30 minutes a day in core classes.
- Limit screen time, including cell phones, tablets, and computers, and monitor use of social media and texting, particularly if you notice sudden changes in mood or behavior.
- Encouraging healthy behaviors, including adequate sleep and nutrition. Breakfast and lunch is served free of charge to all students. Teenagers need 8-10 hours of sleep every night.
- Promoting positive use of my child’s extracurricular time, including encouraging involvement in extracurriculars and athletics.
- Staying informed about my child’s education and communicating with the school by promptly reading all notices from the school or the school district either received by my child or by mail and responding, as appropriate.
- Volunteering for school events and trips, and/or as parent representative on the school’s School Improvement Team or other school advisory or policy groups.
