Test Day 2 - MOTIVATION!!!

Hey teachers, wanna get your parents involved? Try this:

Call 10 of your parents today and let them know how encouraged you are about their child's progress. Find good news and share it. Make sure it is academic and social. Also, thank the parent for choosing IAT for their child's education. I guarantee you this will work!
