PARENT PERCEPTION SURVEY
Each household should have recieved the annual parent perception survey. Please, be sure to fill the survey out, and return it back to school with your student as soon as possible. This survey is extremely important to us as a school, because we value your feedback on how we can improve. The more surveys we get returned the better we will do on our district report card. The class with the most surveys returned will earn a pizza party, and dance party with Mr. Coyne. Thank you so much for taking the time to fill it out this important survey.
