Your Middle School Child Secretly Wants You to Be Involved

Believe it or not, your Middle School Child wants you to be more knowledgeable partners about schooling and are willing to take an active role in assisting communications between home and school.  Parents can do this by becoming a Parent Volunteer, being active in the PTO or other parent organizations, advisory councils, or committees for parent leadership and participation. There is a Parent Volunteer form on this page that you can download , fill out and then  return to the Front Office.  If you are unable to download the Parent Volunteer form, please call me and I will be happy to send one to you.

Thank you!
