Dear Parents/Guardians:


When you are involved, your child achieves more!  Research shows that regardless of the economic, ethnic, or cultural background of the family, when parents/guardians are involved in their children's education, students have:

  • Higher grades, test scores, and graduation rates
  • Better school attendance
  • Increased motivation
  • Better self-esteem
  • Lower rates of suspension
  • Decreased use of drugs and alcohol
  • Fewer instances of violent behavior
  • Greater enrollment rates in post-secondary education

Here are several things that you can do to monitor your son/daughter's progress:

  • Expect your son/daughter to have homework.
  • Check your son/daughter's attendance by calling:

                        Last Names A-L    x4545   

                        Last Names M-Z    x4112                          

  • Check your son/daughter's grades on the Canvas.  You will need to know your son/daughter's Millikan ID number, a Canvas access number and have an e-mail account in order to register as an observer on Canvas.
  • Participate in Back-to-School, Open House Parent Nights.
  • Stay in contact with your son/daughter's teachers and counselor.
  • Check for the next progress report in ParentVue.
