We want to make sure we have provided helpful information in the tutorials and are doing all we can to strengthen the partnership between us as a school and you as the parent so that our students can be as successful as possible!
As mentioned previously, MacNay (2002) states, “Even though it is exceedingly difficult to isolate and distinguish the impact of the numerous components of social context on individual student achievement, it is generally accepted that, when schools are an integral part of stable social contexts, teachers and parents naturally reinforce each other and the community’s social and educational values. In such contexts, students easily form bonds with adults and experience a sense of continuity and stability, conditions that are highly correlated with high academic achievement” (p. 48).
