Great success at any school does not happen without a team effort. We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTO, as well as attending and supporting school events. Throughout the year, you will be receiving announcements of upcoming meetings, parent-teacher conferences, assemblies, etc. I ask that you please be a part of the Rustic Lane school community and that you support our school by attending these important functions. 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 as that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers and gets his/her agenda signed nightly

3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4) Practices basic math facts and looks for examples of how math is a part of their world

5) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

6) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

7) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and to give his/her very best

Once school begins, your child will also be receiving a packet containing important forms that must be completed and returned to the school.  On some of the forms only one form per family is needed; on other forms you will need to complete a form for each child.  Please read the instructions carefully, complete the form, sign, and date.  We would like these forms returned to school as soon as possible.

We will make communication a top priority and invite you to partner with us as we absolutely can grow stronger together.  I look forward to working with our remarkable staff, involved parents, and committed students in the year ahead.
