In an effort to promote more parental involvement we would like to distribute a short survey to parents regarding strategies to support school work at home. It was suggested that perhaps an evening session at the school where teachers could demonstrate to parents some ideas and answer questions would be valuable. To that end, we are in need of suggestions for these sessions. In other words, what would YOU like to have presented at these sessions? Please email or give your suggestions to Mr. Bauman, Mrs. Draheim, or Mrs. Fowler. Thank you.
