Homework It is important that your child take responsibility for his/her homework assignments.

Meeting w/ Teachers After school only (unless it’s an emergency) Contact us through email, planners, class blog Expect both teachers to be present when meeting with them In order for the Spanish teacher to communicate w/ you in English, your student cannot be present!
Volunteers The best way to volunteer is to help your child at home with reading and getting their homework done!!! Time in the Immersion Program is limited and valuable. We will contact you when help is needed Participation in the PTA is always welcome and needed
Parents should maintain an active role in their child’s education by providing experiences that help develop their English language skills. Parents should read to them daily and engage them in activities where they need to apply what they are learning in class. Our time in the Immersion Program is limited and valuable. The fewer distractions we encounter in the classroom will aide our instructional time and in return will be reflected in your child’s academic success. Many teachers ask for parent help in a variety of ways: working with small groups of children, sharing a part of your culture or help with special projects of paperwork. Contact your child’s teacher if you are interested in helping out. Teachers run their classrooms very differently. Please do not be offended if your child’s teacher does not seek help from parents in his/her classroom. Participation in the PTA is always welcome and needed as well as other school wide functions and fund raisers.
