Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Research suggests that a positive school climate can support student success.

Please let us know what you think by completing an anonymous survey at:

The survey will be open until Friday, November 30, 2018.

Please help us improve the school climate by taking 5-10 minutes to complete this survey.   Families with multiple students, please take this survey one time only.  If you choose to complete the survey, please send in a brief note to the office stating you did so.  Your name will be entered into a random drawing to win gift cards to local stores.  Several winners will be chosen.
