Lee's Summit R7 Parents As Teachers

May 2018

Wow! What a whirlwind school year. There are lots of great things happening in the Lee's Summit R7 School District and especially within Parents As Teachers. We appreciate the support we receive from our great community and your parent educators are working hard to finish out this school year.

Our last day of school is May 25th. Please make sure that you communicate with your parent educator any changes that take place over the summer to ensure smooth services for you and your family.

If you have a kiddo headed to kindergarten in the Fall, we wish you well.
