Parent Involvement Opportunities

Our Campus Decision Making Committee is a committee made up of parents and staff. It meets 4 times a year to discuss school priorities, student achievement data, goals, and funding. It is so important that we have PARENTS AND GUARDIANS attend these meetings because your input is valuable and needs to be heard. Please make plans to attend our first meeting on Thursday, October 10 at 5:30 pm. Free childcare will be provided!
