My Vision for San Marcos

I'd like to provide more opportunities for parents to get involved in the Parent Center and in our school. I hope to do this by offering more classes that are of interest and beneficial to our parents.

I want parents to feel comfortable spending time in the Parent Center and to have a sense of ownership; to feel that they are an important part of the San Marcos Community.

Final Thoughts

The San Marcos Parent Center is an extraordinary privilege and one that parents should fully enjoy. It is an opportunity for them to participate in their child's education by learning about the school, meeting other parents, and getting to know the San Marcos staff. Students whose parents are involved in the educational process inevitably experience stronger success in school. The San Marcos Parent Center helps to provide a way for parents to “come to school” too.
