Dear Petrides Parent,

We recognize that partnering with parents is critical to ensuring that students have the continuous support necessary to succeed at school.  We are excited to offer opportunities for you to interact with staff and experience yourself, what is expected of our students.  Please see below the Parents as Partners activities we arranged for the month of October.  We invite and encourage you to join us for the interactive sessions that interest you!
