between parents and teachers for the benefit of the students and the whole community. Its main

PARENTS AS PARTNERS
Just as the parents look to the school to provide the facilities and the trained personnel that are
essential to their child's proper development, so the school looks to the parents to assume active
responsibilities that cannot be delegated to others.
No school can be wholly effective in teaching the values of religion and the virtues of honesty,
respect for authority, consideration for the rights and property of others, and standards of
personal morality and integrity unless these principles have been established, upheld, and valued
in the home. If parents cooperate with the school, instill respect for the integrity of its teachers
and administration, and actively support their authority in the home, this is likely to be reflected
in the positive attitudes of their children.
Parents are asked to take an active role in their child's education by:
1) assisting their child in his/her academic and moral development by carefully reviewing
class work, test results, and report cards; supervising home study; and reinforcing school
2) explaining and periodically reviewing the school behavior code with their child.
Parents should discuss school disciplinary episodes in relation to the school behavior code.
3) recognizing their child's talents and interests so they may be developed in cooperation
with the classroom teacher.
4) seeing that the dress code, including gym uniform, is enforced and insisting that
children dress according to Christian virtue.
5) insisting on their child's regular school attendance and punctuality and on complying
with attendance rules and procedures.
6) making all tuition and fee payments on time and participating in voluntary fund-raising
7) providing proper supervision at home and not tolerating harassment, inappropriate or
violent behavior or the viewing of such in videos, movies, song lyrics, and on the Internet.
8) teaching their child respect for law, for authority, for the rights of others, and for
public and private property. This includes showing respect for the work of others by not
tolerating cheating in any circumstance.
9) arranging for a time and quiet place for their child to complete homework assignments.
10) working with the school in a cooperative effort to carry out recommendations made
in the best interest of their child, including those related to educational evaluations and
11) attending all parent-teacher conferences and Parents' Association meetings.
12) by always interacting in a respectful manner when speaking with or about the
administration, teachers, and staff of the school. Verbal abuse or physical harassment may result
in your child's being required to withdraw from the school immediately or not being allowed to
re-register for the following year.
The education of a child is a partnership between the parents and the school. Just as the
parent has the right to withdraw a child if desired, the school administration reserves the right
to require the withdrawal of a student if the administration determines that the partnership is
