Parent Power Hour - January 27, 2017

We will discuss the benefits of standardized testing and how schools use results to inform instructional practices. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions related to your child's performance. Communications are an integral part of a positive school-home connection; therefore, it is our goal to provide an additional layer of communication that will foster a climate of transparency and open sharing of information. We hope you can attend.
