 What Can You Do?

How can you help support Mary Raber's Mission, Vision, and School Goals?

  • Stay in communication with your child's school.  Talk to teachers, principal, etc.
  • Assist your child in being responsible.  Make sure all homework and important papers are returned on time to school.
  • Ask your child's teacher if they need help in the classroom, volunteering if possible.
  • Have your child tell you 3 things they did at school today (lunch and recess don't count).
  • If your child or family needs assistance, ask for help.
