Parents as Partners
Since parents know their children best, they are indispensable partners in determining the course of their child’s education. Their voice should be represented whenever their children’s best interest is discussed, so that families can be an integral part of the solution.
Our schools exist to provide a quality education to our children. While there are many important topics that compete for the focus of educators, our primary objective needs to be equipping our children to succeed in academic subjects.
Health & Safety
Students need a school environment that prioritizes their safety and health. Children cannot learn if their fundamental needs for security and wellness are not met. Schools can partner with families to ensure that the needs of students are identified and addressed.
Respect & Civility
The classroom should be a place where differing perspectives are heard and respected. While there might not always be agreement, there must be a commitment to civility, and mutual respect should be modeled for and expected of our students.
Learning is a lifelong process. Building a foundation for this journey is critical, and the battle can be won or lost in the critical developmental years. Therefore, students need to be resourced and equipped at an early age to develop the skills necessary to be successful.
