The Excellence for All parent steering committee is about parents from every school receiving information and engaging in two-way conversations with the Superintendent and other staff members so they can become more effective in helping their student succeed.  This comes along with the burden of helping other parents become more involved so their children can benefit from their involvement.

We need your help in reaching out to parents in your school or other schools.  Please share information with them.  Please recruit other parents to become a part of this group as well.  Remember we are looking for 1 to 4 parents from each school.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday, please remember to RSVP
