AMES University for Parents

At our first School Improvement Council meeting, our council discussed ways to keep our parents informed on different school initiatives. School has certainly changed over the past few years and continues to change as we strive to provide the very best education for your child. Of course, research show that children benefit most when parents and educators work together.

AMES University will offer opportunities for parents to learn about different programs being offered to your child in school and strategies for helping them at home. Please look for information to come home about opportunities to learn more about our school programs. Our hope is that AMES University will be that link between the school and parents to ensure that we are all doing everything we can to provide the best possible educational opportunities our children.
