Information for Parents
Leal Elementary School has established a strong school and community relationship. Leal School features an active Parent & Community Volunteer program, an active PTA, and an active mentoring program. Parents are encouraged to assist in activities such as an Ice Cream Social, Walk-a-thon, Olympics, Arts Night, various cultural events and performances, Book Fair, and Fun Fair. Parent volunteers will be solicited to tutor children and assist in the classroom. A “joint calendar” that includes activities of all of the school’s leadership groups, is to be produced annually. The Joint Calendar will include our parent & community activites for each month.
Families are always welcome at Leal. Throughout the year, Tuesdays and Thursdays are open visitation days. You may observe or visit any classroom on these days without having to make an appointment with the teacher. On other days, you are welcome, but we request that you contact the teacher prior to visiting. When you arrive at school, please sign in at the school office before going into the classroom.
Leal has a number of ways for parents to be involved in decisions about the school and its activities. Parents are encouraged to join the School Improvement Team, Latino Advisory Committee, Playground Committee and the Parent Teacher Association. Let the principal know that you are interested.
Leal PTA meetings are a forum to discuss PTA priorities and activities and to get the latest information on what’s happening at Leal. It’s a great way to get involved and meet other Leal parents. Child care and Spanish translation are available. All Leal families are welcome!
