Where Learning Comes First
Dear Head Community,
Thank you to everyone who came out for curriculum night this week! We had such a great turn out! It always reminds me that we have a very strong school-home connection here at Head!
Speaking of school-home connection, we are looking for parents and business partners to serve on our local school council this year. These new members would join our returning parents and business partners who have been strong, active members of the group for several years. School council are advisory bodies to the Principal. They are given data, information, and details about school management and then may advise and make recommendations on any matter related to school improvement and student achievement. We meet 4 times in a school year with each meeting scheduled for a Thursday evening at 6pm. Meetings last one hour. If you are interested in serving as a school council member, please email me by August 25th. We are specifically looking for at least one more business owner/partner to join. If you, or someone you know, owns a business in our community, please let me know that as well. Thanks!
