Get Involved In Your Child's Learning
What Can You Do?
Links: Importance of Parental Involvement
Communication is key to success in ANY relationship. Email is the best way to communicate with me - PLEASE let me know about your childs successes and struggles, you and your family, your questions or concerns (or praises...), or ANYTHING ELSE that may affect your child's performance and function in school - it IS important and I DO care!
Feel free to send me an email (see below) to let me know if you are involved in a science-related field, if you would like to present during class about a science-related topic, or if you are simply available during the day to help in class or on class field trips. It's great for the students to see others involved in the community!

Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
Be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits
Attend school regularly
Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school
Graduate and go on to postsecondary education"
