Parents and Guardians:
On behalf of the staff at Allgood Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives
on time, dressed in uniform, and ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework
assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love
for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with
you so that you are aware of his/her school life 5) Informs you if he/she needs
additional support in any area or subject
6) Knows that you expect him/her to
succeed in school and go on to college
visit our Parent Center (room 100) and consider volunteering (as needed). Our
Parent Liaison is Mrs. Brenda Edison, and she is eager to hear from you. See Ms. Edison about how to gain access to Infinite Campus so you can monitor your child’s grades and progress in school via the internet at anytime. We also invite you to join our PTA.
The membership fee is $7. The PTA, under the leadership of Ms. Alysha Quinn-
