FAMILY FUN DAY!!

This is a fun event where our children get to learn facts, play to learn more about other cultures and their traditions, and try cuisine from around the globe!
Contests. Raffles. Prizes. Music. Dance. Food.
We are still in need of help for the event.

that children earn higher grades, receive better test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs when their parents are involved in their education, according to the National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education. Get Involved! Here are some simple ways:
1. Ask your child about school. Just saying "Tell me something you learned today" shows that you're interested in his school day.
2. Read to your child or let them read to you.
3. Help with their homework or just check the answers.
4. Join your school's parent group. Attend a meeting to find out what's happening in school and how you can get involved.
