Parent Questionnaire

At Back to School Night, I asked the parents to please complete the Parent Questionnaire to give me some background info about your child. I want to be the best teacher I can be, and your perspective as a parent is extremely valuable. If you have not yet completed that, it would be great if you would do so as soon as possible. Thank you!
