El Consejo Consultivo de Aprendices de Inglés de la Escuela (ELAC) tienen como fin el incrementar la capacidad de participación paterna, además mantiene a los padres informados de los programas y resultados, y sirven como una vía de comunicación.

El ELAC y sus contrapartes a nivel del distrito son vías fabulosas para que los padres y miembros de la comunidad de involucren e impacten positivamente las decisiones que se toman, tanto a nivel de la escuela como del distrito. Esperamos verles en estos eventos.

Meeting Days & Times: TBD
FAMILY FRIDAY ASSEMBLIES (During Distance Learning, please join Mr. Shimko for Principal Chat at 1pm last Friday (school day) of each month. See announcements for zoom link.)
A reminder to parents that we have our Family Fridays the last Friday of each month, We start the day with our Schoolwide assembly on the blacktop. We invite you to come and join us on the playground at the start of school on these days. Then parents are invited to join their children in class for special activities. After, parents meet in the MPR for a presentation on interesting topics.
Also, our parent bulletin and calendar is sent home with students monthly, usually on the First Friday of the month to keep you updated of events and important information.
We believe strongly that parents are a child’s first teacher, and what you do at home sets the tone for how a child performs at school. Please provide opportunities for your child to practice skills at home as well as a time and place for them do homework. Plus, have your child read every night…it is critical to their reading success. We also invite you to visit our school often and to volunteer to help when you can.
