Contact a Teacher today!

One of the best resources any student or family can utilize is a TEACHER. Your child's teacher not only knows what material the student is learning on a daily basis, and will be expected to learn throughout the year (and future!), but they also have been able to get to know your child by interacting with them everyday. The teacher will be able to work closely with a family to best support a child. Contact your child's teacher today! If help is needed with interpreting, contact your school's Family Liaison or other supportive office staff member.
