"Where Dreams Begin"
Your feedback about our school is important to us. This year, we respectfully request a few moments of your time to complete the School Quality Survey (SQS), which measures your perceptions of the safety and well-being of your child and your satisfaction and involvement/engagement with our school. Your responses will be kept confidential in order to gather candid information and will be used by our school for continuous improvement purposes.
As a parent/guardian, this is an opportunity for your voice to be heard. A parent/guardian may complete one survey per child. You may complete the SQS online at:
or by scanning the QR code in the letter to the right.
