Gospel Value: Respect

Respecting the life and dignity of myself and each person in thought, word and action.

Dear Star Families and Friends,

I can’t believe that we are in the month of September. In this past week, I’ve had parents approach me about showing more support in the classrooms. Here are two conversations that will help you stay involved.

1. “Show me what you have for homework.”

2. “Tell me about something new you learned today.”

Of course, there are other ways to be involved, and we want to make sure that you know that we are available and open to any ideas that you may have. Your child’s education is our number one priority, and having that parent and teacher communication is the key to success!

Have a great weekend!

Alicia Vazquez
