    2020-2021 Parental-Family Involvement Plan  

    Our school envisions the highest level of success for every student and in order to accomplish this goal, teachers, parents, students, and families must work together in a collaborative partnership. Each year, our school develops a Parent-Family Involvement Plan to provide regular opportunities for us to exchange ideas about how we can support and promote the educational growth of each student. Here are ways in which you can become involved in your child’s education during the coming school year!
