Other miscellaneous forms:
Our schools are successful because students and parents get involved in their school. Students are encouraged to participate in areas of interest such as clubs, sports and the arts to round out their academic educational experience. Parents are encouraged to be involved in their child's school by attending parent/teacher conferences, participating as a volunteer, being active in the school PTO, and going to school events. Our district is strong because of the effort that our students, parents, and community make to be involved in our schools.
