Parent involvement details Short Avenue strongly encourages parents involvement in their child(ren)'s education. Parent engagement has a measurable impact on student performance. We communicate through meetings, assemblies, announcements, workshops, emails, flyers. Additionally, we engage parents and care giver's with community events and school projects such as science mania and math madness, and programs like the Great American Spell Check and field trips.
