Note from the Director
It was a pleasure meeting many of you at the Parent Orientation. As our Cycle 1 instruction has come to an end, please continue to reinforce studies at home during Cycle 1 exams. Our teachers are more than willing to receive correspondence from you to ensure each students’ success.
It is vital that every student receive reinforcement at home. We encourage all of our parents to ask their child questions about the academic instruction he or she is receiving everyday.
Simple positive questions to ask:
- What was the best thing that happened at school today? (What was the worst thing that happened at school today?)
- When were you the happiest today?
- If I called your teacher tonight, what would he/she tell me about you?
- How did you help somebody today?
- Do you have homework today?
- Did you understand the topics discussed today?
To ensure students’ success, it is best for parents to inquire with their child to see if he or she needs additional help outside of the classroom. The more communication & interaction every parent has with the teachers, the better progress and success your child will be able to accomplish.

Our RenWeb system is an excellent tool for parents to use to keep track of their child’s academic performance in class.
The school will continue to send progress reports halfway through each cycle, but RenWeb allows ongoing access to student: grades, conduct, and tardy/absence recordings. Teacher contact information is also available through the RenWeb system. Please use the link below for directions on how to set up a Parent RenWeb account if you do not currently have access.
