Mark White Families
Your involvement at our school is critical to the success and well-being of our students and staff. We firmly believe that a strong partnership with parents increases the opportunities for academic success for our students. Most importantly, it creates an environment that students, parents, and staff enjoy. If you have not yet, please take the opportunity to join the PTO. Joining the PTO allows you to contribute to the many events and activities that are planned throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you and seeing you at upcoming PTO events.
