Elementary School and Family Compact


It is important that families and schools work together to help students achieve high academic standards.  Through a process that included teachers, families, students, and community representatives, the following are agreed-upon roles and responsibilities that we as partners will carry out to support students' success in school and in life.

  • Limit my TV watching and, instead, study or read every day after school.
