Family Engagement and Partnership Desire

Last week we attended the National Family Engagement Summit in Charlotte, NC.  This was a wonderful opportunity to learn more strategies and support for higher rates of family and school partnerships and engagement.  We are on fire here! We want to partner with you for increases in shared opportunities for learning and supporting your child.  Have ideas about what engagement or partnership looks like?  Please send them to me at  Want to give me one on one input? Email me at or call the school to schedule an appointment time.  I would love to meet with you! Wish we would do something differently?  Please tell us!  We want to know and get better and better each day -- all in support of student success and partnership with you. 

Your Proud Principal, 


Dr. Graf
