Dear Parents,
      The most important people at a school are the students.  Without students, we would not have a school.  All of our decisions must be based on what is the best for our students. 
     When parents drop off their students in the morning, they want them to be safe, educated, challenged, supported and happy.  At Parkmont, our teachers and staff work to provide our students the lessons, projects and structure they need to be critical thinkers who are responsible for their own education. 
      It all works best with parents and teachers work together to support students in their learning.  I want to thank our parents for helping their students to learn the new concepts and to learn to be independent.  Parenting is not easy and there are no right answers.  It is hard to know how much to push, when to let go, when to let the student take the natural consequences, and when to talk to the teacher. 
     I encourage you to let your student know you support their teacher and that you will clarify concerns when you can.  We all work best when we can communicate in a respectful manner to find common understanding.  We do love your child and we do want him and her to be successful.
    The surgery on March 25 for Ms. Dotson, kindergarten teacher, was a success in removing most of the brain tumor.  She came home after five days and is improving every day.  She will have chemo to get the rest of the tumor.  She says thank you for all the prayers, positive thoughts, cards and flowers.  We will continue to surround her with our love and positive energy for a complete healing.  If you wish to send a card, you may drop it at the office to be delivered to Ms. Dotson. 
    Spring Break is a great time for all of us to recharge our batteries.  I trust you and your family with have a refreshing week.
