Dear Parents and Guardians:
Welcome to a new and exciting school year at River’s Edge Elementary School. Clayton County Public Schools has made a Commitment to High Performance. As your Title I Parent Liaison, it is my goal to provide each of you with the essential support and resources needed to assist you in aiding in your child’s academic achievement as they journey on the road to High Performance.

Our Parent Academy Workshop topics provide useful strategies you can utilize for learning at home with your child. There will be several opportunities to attend the various workshops offered. Please refer to the monthly Resource Center Calendar for the dates and times which classes are presented as well as other events for parents. You may, in addition, contact me to request one on one sessions to accommodate your individual schedules. Also included with the monthly calendar is the Parent Resource Center’s informational newsletter, the R.E.E.S. Register.

Throughout the year I will send correspondence home with your child in order to alert you of important Title I Parent issues and Parent meetings. I urge you to read thoroughly, respond truthfully, and return promptly all paperwork requiring attention to school as we need your input.
I invite you to visit and become familiar with our Title I funded Parent Resource Center. It is located in Room 8 at the end of the Kindergarten hallway, and open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Parent Resource Center offers a variety of resources and opportunities to every River’s Edge Elementary School parent.

Some of the available resources include:
 Parent and Family Engagement Activities
 Parent Academy Workshops and Trainings
 Supplemental Take With You Tools for Learning at Home
 Lending Library
 Resume Writing Assistance for Job Seekers
 Computer Usage and Document Printing
 Volunteer Application Processing

Please know that I am here to assist you with any of your Parent and Family Engagement needs and inquiries. You can reach me by phone at 770 460-2340 extension 129126 or via email at: It is my hope that during this 2017-2018 school year all River’s Edge Elementary School parents will be able to take advantage of the many resources available. I look forward to welcoming you frequently into the River’s Edge Parent Resource Center for Parent and Family Engagement.

Sincerely yours,

Carmen J. Lankster,

Parent Liaison
