We would love to hear from parents about items they feel strongly about such as curriculum updates, transitioning to middle school, and physical activities. We would also like to engage the diverse community of which we are a part. Please contact us if you have ideas or would like to serve as a Parents’ Association translator or community ambassador.Embed from Getty Images
