Parent Climate Survey

We now have 77 responses on the Parent Climate Survey. Thank you to those of you who took a few minutes to complete the survey. The link is till active so there's still time. Your input is very important to us!

For the past two years our School Improvement Team has put out a Parent Climate Survey. We use the data from this survey to write our School Improvement Plan and to improve our school climate and culture. We appreciate your anonymous, honest feedback and thoughtful comments. The SIT is a group of elected individuals consisting of parents, teachers, and administrators. The team is responsible for creating and monitoring the school's mission, vision, and school improvement goals.
