How can I learn more about what is going on at school?
Ask your child what is going on at school – engaged and interested families are critical to student success.

You are encouraged to contact your child’s teacher and/or contact the principal at any time if you have questions.  Attend a “coffee chat” with the Principal (see PTSA calendar for dates).  Principal McDaniel is available for informal conversations regarding any issue you feel needs to be addressed and encourages you to also bring potential solutions to to make us better equipped to meet the needs of every child.  Her purpose is to listen with the intent of making our school a better place to learn, teach, and play for students.
