Welcome to Home & School!
** Please click here to visit our Home and School website **
Home and School is an organization of parents and staff working together, dedicated to providing our children with a quality of education. The main goal of Home and School is to promote the involvement of parents, students, educators and the community in the advancement of learning and enrichment, and to act as a voice for parents. All parents are encouraged to participate in ways that most suit their own talents and lifestyles.
You can be an active member, able to volunteer regularly or occasionally participate in Home and School events or a non-active member showing your support – we appreciate both!
