Be a "VIP" (Very Involved Parent)
Parents are vital to children’s success in school. Here’s
During the school-age years, children spend only about 13
percent of their time at school. But they’re learning all the
time! Although teachers play an important part, parents are in
the best position to help their kids do well in school and life.
It doesn’t matter where you live, how much education you have or
how much money you earn. You can make a big difference in your
child’s education – all year ‘round!
There’s more than one way to be involved in education. We
know it’s hard to attend every parent meeting or school event.
However, there are many other ways for you to get involved and
help your child be successful. Make education a priority in your
home. Show an interest in your child’s schoolwork and school
activities. Get acquainted with your child’s teachers.
Sometimes, learning is hard work. Teach your child that effort
is just as important as ability.
Your involvement is critical – at every age. All children,
weather they are in first grade or twelfth grade, need parents
who encourage, guide and support their learning. Even if you
can’t help with homework every night, you can give your child
something just as valuable: positive attitudes, good self-esteem
and the desire to learn.
You want your child to do well in school. So do we. Let’s
work together to make it happen. We’ll do everything we can to
communicate with you openly and honestly about your child’s
progress, school rules, and anything else you want to know.
Don’t hesitate to contact teachers and other school officials
when you have questions or suggestions. Your opinions are
important. After all, you know your child better than anyone.

Visitors On Campus/Parking
All Visitors must sign in and wear a visitor’s badge. No one is allowed on our campus without first signing in. Teachers will not allow any adult in their classroom without a visitor badge and adults who visit a classroom when students are present should be approved volunteers. This policy is enforced to ensure the safety and security of our students and guests. Instructional time is from 8:10 until 3:00. Please do not interrupt classes by going to your child’s classroom during this time unless arrangements have been made with the teacher in advance. Teachers will bring students out front at the end of the school day.
Please do not park along the sidewalk in front of the school during student drop off times: 7:45 – 8:10 a.m. and student pick up times: 3:00 – 3:15 p.m. When picking up car riders in the afternoons, drivers MUST remain with their vehicle. If your child comes out late and causes a back-up, you will be asked to park in the parking lot to wait for your child. Dismissal for students whose parents walk to pick them up will be at 3:10 p.m. A place card with your child’s name placed on the dash also helps pick up go smoothly, especially at the beginning of the year.
