Parent Information Page
At Carson we both welcome and encourage parent involvement. The goal of our parent involvement plan is to increase student achievement. You are our partners in this endeavor. You are always welcome to visit your child’s classroom. We encourage regular communication between home and school and we invite you to join our Family Involvement Action Team (F.I.A.T.) for monthly meetings. We look forward to partnering with you to help your child to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally.
