Dear Parents/Guardians:

We are pleased to welcome your child to our classes!  We look forward to an exciting and rewarding year.  Research shows that children experience more success in school when parents/guardians show an interest in their child’s schoolwork.
In order to provide your child with the excellent educational atmosphere they deserve, we have developed the policies in this packet.  Please read the policies carefully and refer to them throughout the school year.
We’re looking forward to a great year!
