Parents are an integral part of our team. There are several ways in which parents can engage in our school's mission:


    • We value the contributions and input of parents in the community and day to day culture building of our school and encourage communication through our meetings, website, email, and facebook page
    • Fundraise to support school programs: resources for school projects, incentives for Attendance Matters, prizes for STEAM nights/ Math nights, Reflections Program, field trip support, adding extra supplies to Maker Spaces and Library
    • Show appreciation: monthly appreciation gifts to teachers and staff, volunteer banquet, 8th grade party

ATP (The Action Team for Partnerships)

    • This is a committee of educators, parents, and community members that meets monthly to develop plans for school, family, and community partnerships. Out of this committee a roster can be developed to use for guest speakers, leadership and partnerships to support student learning
    • ATP along with PTSA plan events to encourage parents involvement in schools including STEAM nights, Math events, and Parents and Pastries nights
