Parent Information

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Please keep your children's personal toys at home.  Children should only come with certain items if they are being presented for 'Show and Tell'.  It makes it very hard in the classroom to keep these separate from our own supplies, and properly send their toys back with them home. 

Parent Handbook
Our Parent Handbook is provided so that you may understand the school’s policies and guiding principles. We welcome you in discussing goals and objectives for your child and your participation and cooperation in attaining those goals.  We want you to be part of our busy, happy, noisy, creative classrooms, and see your child at work and play. We believe that parents working together with teachers are a positive and productive way to enhance your child’s success
