It is our commitment to provide exciting and memorable learning experiences for the children at Velma E. Baker School. Your child is our number one focus. By working together as partners, we can make a difference in your child(ren)’s education. Parents are valued partners who play an integral role in their child’s learning. We encourage all parents to take an active role in their child’s education and we welcome you to the school. All parents are invited to participate in the School and Parent Advisory Councils’ monthly, evening meetings. You are welcome to be involved in helping in the library, reading with a student, assisting in the classroom, supervising on field trips or sharing a special interest or talent with our students. As the old proverb goes: It takes a village to raise a child.
