Parents as Partners
Our school values the assistance of its parents, who partner with us, share our core values, understand our mission and support our curriculum, faculty, staff and administration through extensive volunteer activities and events. Parents recognize that effective partnerships are characterized by clearly defined responsibilities, a shared commitment to collaboration, open lines of communication, mutual respect and trust, and a common vision of the goals to be reached.
