Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Throughout the schools history, the relationships among faculty, parents, and students have contributed to making Les Petits a very special place. We encourage parent involvement during the school year and to promote this we host activities such as: The annual summer picnic, fall pot luck dinner, and parent appreciation night (we take care of the children while you are free to shop for the holidays!).
