Family Engagement Survey

  • How is our school doing?
  • Are we welcoming and inviting?
  • Do we communicate well with you?
  • Does your child feel safe at school?

Let us know by completing our Family Engagement Survey. The survey deadline is March 9.

The SCCS for parents is open February 12 to March 9.  Please encourage parents to take the survey.  They will have the following 3 options:


·      Take the survey in the school library during P/T conferences

·      Take the survey in the computer lab during Winter Fun Night

·      Take the survey at home


Everyone who completes the survey will be given a ticket to sign and return for a drawing during winter fun night.  Parents who take the survey at home are encourage to print the completion page and submit it to Shirlyn or Jen for a ticket. Surveys submitted after Winter Fun Night 2/23 will not be eligible for the drawing.
