Welcome to Parent Resources!
Children learn best when the significant adults in their lives, educators, parents, and other family and community members, work together to encourage and support them. To foster a partnership between school and home, clear communication is essential.
The resources listed on this page are designed to develop communication to give families and community members tools they can use to enhance learning both inside and outside the classroom. As the school year progresses, resources will be updated to reflect the teaching and learning taking place in classrooms.
Have a fantastic school year!
