ALLEN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TITLE ONE LEARNING COMPACT 2019-20 MISSION STATEMENT Allen School strives to engage all students, parents, and community members in the learning process. Innovation, creativity, and collaboration are an integral part of the school experience. Teachers frequently analyze data to drive instruction and support personalized goals for all students. Optimal academic achievement occurs when students feel valued, safe, and invested in their own learning. Therefore, the staff is committed to fostering positive relationships with all students. As parents/guardians, we will: * Make sure that our child attends school regularly and arrives on time so s/he will receive the full benefit of instruction * Encourage good study habits at home, by helping her/him find the time and a quiet spot to work at home so that s/he can complete her/his homework which helps reinforce what s/he has learned during the school day * Communicate with our child’s teacher regularly in person, by phone or by email during both easy and difficult periods * Encourage our child to solve problems peacefully, which includes modeling and talking about problem-solving strategies in our home * Show our belief in the importance of school by attending scheduled conferences, volunteering whenever possible, and participating in classroom or after-school events
