Parents and guardians are important members of the teaching and learning team and must be involved in their child’s education. We appreciate the many ways in which families support our schools and support their own child’s education… from study sessions at the kitchen table and feedback on a child’s first draft of an essay to attendance at plays, concerts, and sporting events or behind-the-scenes work as a volunteer. We do our best work for your children when families are standing with us. Here in Gwinnett, we have high expectations for all students. When parents reinforce those high expectations at home, students are supported on all sides for success. The school encourages students to be in class daily, ready to learn. Families that value education and emphasize regular attendance and being prepared reinforce that commitment to learning and underscore the importance of education for future success. Traits like personal responsibility, respectful behavior, and a strong work ethic can be promoted in the classroom but it’s the influence of the significant adults in a child’s life who really makes these important attributes stick. Thank you to our families and their commitment to supporting a strong home-school connection!
