Tips on Parenting:

It is important that schools form partnerships with parents to promote the social, emotional, and academic growth of children. It is the responsibility of all of us – parents, teachers, community members, and students to work together to help every child succeed. Children benefit greatly from loving, supportive relationships at home and at school. Research says family involvement in education makes a difference. You can make a significant difference in your child’s achievement at school and in life.
