Awfaz School

For parents

OVERVIEW

Together we dream, believe, and achieve, leaving memories of a remarkable journey.

The key word in this statement is “together.” While teachers are at the front of the classroom each day, it’s the family a student comes home to that provides the foundation for academic success. Parents should be at the heart of every child’s education and that’s why we believe that parental involvement in school is so important.

Research regularly shows that parental engagement is essential to an excellent education. To make sure our students are given the very best start, we work hard to develop strong partnerships with the parents of our diverse body of students.

  • Plain dark shoes and plain socks must be worn. Plain stockings or tights may be worn instead of socks.
