Parents play a vital role in a student's success!
  Our parents play a significant role not only in the lives of their student, but also in the life of our school environment. We find that our relationship with our parents to bridge the home and school is best utilized when we share with each other joys and concerns in the classroom. Using Parent Teacher conferences, email, phone calls home (auto-dialer included) keep our parents informed and often allows for immediate parent feedback for our events and activities, as well as the academic structure of our school. We begin building our relationships with the parents/guardians of our students through the Incoming Freshman Orientation night while the students are still in 8th grade. This night has included t-shirt give away, food, and preview of athletics and activities. This excites the parents and they work alongside the team of teachers and staff until the student is crossing the stage at Graduation.
