Schools host many events throughout the year.
Read the Information that the Teacher and School Send
Read the information that your child brings home and take note of important announcements and dates, such as back-to-school night and parent-teacher conferences. You can ask to receive information in your native language if necessary!
There are many ways you can volunteer at school. You can chaperone a field trip, serve as a school committee representative, help in your child's class, library, or in the school office.
