Parents and teachers are on the same page when it comes to school

Parents and teachers are some of the most important people in a child's life. Maximize the synergy of your educational efforts and love by going beyond quarterly conferences to keep the lines of communication open all year long! ​

"When teachers and parents communicate on a regular basis children are more motivated to learn, attend school regularly, have a good attitude about school and behave better. " http://ow.ly/eWOF30msFPA
