Dear Parents:


Family School 32 views parents as partners in their child’s education.  To provide an opportunity for parents to visit their child in the classroom and work on exciting learning activities we are continuing to implement Parents and Child Together Time (P.A.C.T. Time). 


 P.A.C.T. Time will be held the second and fourth Wednesday of every month for a 45-minute period for Grades Pre-K through Grade 6. The time will vary according to the Grade Level so we are asking that you review the schedule below and make note of the time.
