Insider Tip for Parents: Sometimes it’s hard as children grow to know how we can stay involved in their lives and academics. We go from being present as helpers in their kindergarten classes to having to show our ID just to get into the building at high school. We as teachers want you involved! Join the teachers’ schoology website, email the teachers with questions you have, attend open house, volunteer thru the booster club, follow their grades online……be active in the school community. The four years go by fast, as I know well. We want you involved.
Ask the PrincipalAre you curious about something at Fremd but have never asked? Email me at email@example.com. If your question is pertinent to a wider audience, I will include it in the next blog post.
