This week has been designated as American Education Week.

Visit your child's classroom and see what happens on a regular day-to-day basis. Children need to know that you are interested in their learning process. Watch your child's eyes light up when he or she knows the answer to a teacher's question and you are there to see it. Make your child's day and visit, whether it's all day or just during your lunch hour. They will appreciate it.

The following days have been set aside at our local schools:

North County High School, Tuesday. All parents are asked to register in the main office upon entering the building.

Brooklyn Park/Lindale Middle Junior High School, Tuesday. Be sure to know your child's schedule.
