 PALS

(Parents Advocating Learning in Schools)

It is difficult to believe that summer vacation will soon be over, but in just in a few days, school will be back in full-swing and the 2015-2016 school year will officially be underway. I trust all have enjoyed the summer break and I hope you have used the time away from school to rejuvenate and spend quality time together as a family.

Families are our children's first teachers. You teach them to crawl, to walk, to run. You teach them to dream. When your children start school, your job as teachers doesn't end- it changes. We become partners in your children's education. And it's through this partnership that you help your children reach their full potential- the potential you've dreamed of since the moment they were born.

In spirit of this partnership, we invite you to attend the first PALS (Parents Advocating Learning in Schools) meeting of the 2015-2016 school year. At this first meeting, you will learn vital information which will better equip you to assure your student has a successful school year. When parents value education and show it is important through their partnership with the school, students excel. We hope you will take this opportunity to attend the PALS meeting at your student’s school and begin the new year by showing your student we are all working together to assure that staff members are equipped to TEACH, students are prepared to LEARN, and all are more likely to SUCCEED.
