Parents and guardians, please join Tanise Smith for our Parent University classes. The curriculum is based upon the California State PTA’s wildly popular and research and data-driven “School Smarts.” This is an opportunity for you to learn how the school system works, and how you can best support your child. Even those of you that think you know will come away with new knowledge. And knowledge empowers us!
It’s that time of the year. We’re looking for new officers for next year.
We have plenty of opportunities to participate.
You’ll meet your child’s classmate and
make a real difference here on campus.
