School Climate Survey

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Reminder to complete the School Climate Parent Survey.

We want to know what YOU think about your child’s school.

What grade would you give the school?

Do the staff at the school really care about your child?

Do you feel welcome at the school?

You are invited to participate in the annual School Climate Parent Survey! The survey is anonymous and results are used to understand and improve the educational climate of our schools.

Below is a link to the survey site:


Thank you in advance for your participation!​ The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is currently open through Friday, February 28.

Please give the teacher/staff member at least two weeks to draft the recommendation letter. You must fill out the Letter of Recommendation Form in its entirety and present the completed form to the recommender. This document will force a copy to Google Drive, so once you create the copy, please access the document within your drive, rather than re-writing the information each time. Once completed, share the document with the appropriate staff member(s). This can also be found at: bit.ly/recletterlhs
