School Reviews

During the 2008-2009 school year, I received emails from the principal and advisory teacher communicating about parent meetings, TAKS test dates and school close days because of the weather. However, we did not receive emails from other teachers communicating activities in the class rooms. It would be nice if we knew more about study subjects so that I could tutor my child at home. I would suggest something like e-news letter every week. We want more parent involvement to help students improving grades.
