Parent Information

Parent Welcome

Parents are their sons' and daughters' first, best teachers.  It is from parents that our children take their cues regarding the value of school.  It is from parents that they gain their first lessons about work ethic and commitment.  Finally, it is from parents that our children most desire feedback and approval.

Parents who are most engaged in the learning experiences of their children have the greatest positive impact on achievement.  Engaging in discussions regarding school, reading to and with their children, checking PowerSchool, attending 3-Way Conferences, and volunteering are all ways that families can engage in the learning of their Herons Crossing students.

Students do better in school if their parents are engaged in their school careers. From holding them accountable for their attendance and grades and engaging in home reading program together to coming to the play, concert, game or exhibition; all of these activities are integral to a student's success - and to our collective success, as a school!
