We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We need to make sure that our students arrive for the new school year with the belief that education is important and requires hard work. A strong partnership with you will make a tremendous difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and we want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.
