Parent Resource Links

Families are our children's first teachers. You teach them to crawl, to walk, to run. You teach them to dream. When your children start school, your job as teachers doesn't end- it changes. We become partners in your children's education. And it's through this partnership that you help your children reach their full potential- the potential you've dreamed of since the moment they were born.

Check out these great links for busy parents- like you! They will help you support your child's learning. Research shows that students who excel academically often have parents who are interested in their children's learning from an early age.
