We believe that parents, the first and foremost educators of their children, and the teachers should work together in a partnership that is both positive and cooperative. Therefore, as our students learn and develop, we believe that parental involvement is crucial for their success. Many organizations and activities promote communication between home and school. Special efforts are continually made to increase and improve this important link.
It would be very difficult to have so many wonderful opportunities for the students without the continual and enthusiastic support of the parents. Organizations like the School Board, the Home & School Association, room parents, and Partners in Education continually devote time and energy to provide the school with funds, materials, special events, and considerable expertise. An Annual Giving Fund and a yearly “Gala” to raise funds for the school are held. These programs enable the teachers to plan many special activities that enhance the curriculum. They also provide funds for continuing education for teachers.
