Please fill out this form by Monday, 10/26 if you have any questions for her during this session.
The Curriculum Committee keeps our membership up-to-date on various curriculum and instruction topics and works closely with the district administration. It also serves as a conduit for the school community to express concerns related to instruction. We are introducing a new input form where parents can ask curriculum questions. We welcome your feedback and questions. Make your voices heard. #postwhereitcounts
