What is your child's daily learning experience like? Our Open House event on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 6-8 p.m., is your first opportunity to share in that experience and to begin the all important home and school communication this academic year. Research has consistently shown that family engagement is one of the strongest predictors of student academic success.
