Our campus goal is to have 100% participation from our parents/guardians with Parent Connection. We are close with just over 95% but we really hope to get 100% and ensure parents know how to use it to assist with their student's success. To help get everyone signed up with an account, and make sure parents are aware of all the ways it can assist with monitoring student progress - we are hosting a Parent Connection - Get Connected Event on Thursday Nov. 13th from 5:30-7:30 in the school library.
