As administrators, we are very excited and proud to have joined Carrville Mills Pubic School. We are very eager to gain a greater understanding of the community and are looking forward to establishing many positive relationships with all parents and caregivers, so that a strong bond between home and school is maintained. All our staff have been working very hard over the summer in preparation for today’s opening. We owe our caretaking staff gratitude for their work in preparing the school building for the opening of another school year. We are looking forward to working together with all of you as we collaborate to do what’s best for the students at Carrville Mills.
Please join the Carrville Mills family in making our students and school a great success. We intend to maintain high expectations and, with your support and guidance, continue to lead your children, our students, on the path to being not only productive, but respectful and responsible members of society.
We at Carrville Mills want to start conversations about your child, about our school and about our community. This means as parents, you need to be involved in your child’s education.
Why would we want parents to be involved in their child’s learning?
According to the research:
- Students do better in school and in life. They are more likely to earn higher grades and test scores, graduate from high school, and go on to higher education.
- Parents become empowered. Parents develop confidence by helping their children learn at home.
- Teacher morale improves. Teachers who work with families expect more from students and feel a stronger connection to and support from the community.
- Schools get better. When parents are involved at home and at school, in ways that make them full partners, the performance of all children in the school tends to improve.
- Communities grow stronger. Families feel more invested in the school system, and the school system becomes more responsive to parent and community needs.
