Parents in the Classroom
Parental involvment both in and out of the classroom in critical for a child's success. We encourage and invite parents or grandparents to volunteer in our classrooms with reading and other special areas.
We ask that our parent volunteers attend a short training session before joining in the classroom. Please call or email us to find out when the next training is available.
