Education is a partnership | Our Schools


Last updated 10/7/2022 at 9:31am

We have had a great start to the school year! From day one, as I walked the halls of every school, I saw quality instruction and students engaged – what amazing teachers and staff we have. It was a smooth and successful start to what I feel is going to be a strong year.

We have a laser focus on student achievement and making sure every student gets the support they need to grow and reach learning goals. District and building leadership will work together to closely monitor systems and instruction so our kids get the best possible education in our schools.

When one child is not learning, not ALL children are learning, and every single employee of this district has an impact on student achievement.

All of us are excited and ready for a great 2022-23 school year!

We invite parents and guardians as well to be partners with us in their child’s education.

Students with involved parents/guardians are more likely to:

• Attend school regularly

• Earn good grades

• Have a positive attitude toward school

• Have good behavior and

• Have stronger relationships.

Every family is different, and there are many ways parents/guardians can get involved and support their child’s education, even with limited time and money. More than just volunteering at school or joining a parent group, engagement includes all the support parents provide at home and in the classroom.

Making sure your child is prepared to go to school every day, attending parent meetings and school events and even communicating the value of education to your child, is considered parent engagement.

When parents are involved, they are more informed, make better decisions, and are stronger advocates for their children.

Taking the time to be involved in your child’s education shows your child you care and that education is a family value. Getting involved also gives parents/guardians the opportunity to make sure their child is receiving the quality education they deserve.

Knowing and engaging with your child’s teacher is a great place to start.

An excellent way for parents to get to know their child’s teachers is through parent-teacher evenings or events. During the first week of November, elementary and middle schools have parent-teacher conferences, but do not wait.

Get to know your child’s teacher and what is being taught. Teachers have websites and contact information for you. Learn how to monitor assignments and grades through Home Access Center (HAC) so you can see how your child is progressing.

And monitor school calendars, newsletters, and social media for opportunities and dates to get involved in your school.

We appreciate insights we gain from parents to help improve our district. We work to make sure every day is a little better than the day before.

Thank you for supporting our schools, and for your great partnership in education.

Stay safe and be well.
