Greetings Acton Families,
2019 is here! We are so excited about the teaching and learning at Acton this year. Thank you so much for sharing your child with us. We encourage you to stay connection through the parent portal in Skyward with your child’s grades and keep open communication with your child’s teacher. We are available by phone, email and scheduled conferences.
Acton is a place for teaching and learning. Acton students are Anchored in Learning and we are providing numerous opportunities and experiences for our students. We encourage you to partner with us by joining PTA which supports our students and teachers. Our partnership with you is key to celebrate our teachers and students. Additionally, our district has partnered with Right at School, which offers before school and afterschool daycare onsite. Information is provided in our front office.
