We strive to provide programs and materials which allow our parents to feel comfortable and welcome in our school. We believe that we must assist parents in seeing the importance of being involved in their child’s education. Title 1 provides an open-door policy for all parents. Questions and concerns regarding the literacy education of every child can be directed to the Title 1 teacher. Our goal is to involve not only the school staff in these endeavors, but the students, parents and community as a whole.
