Supporting Your Student from Home

  • Gordon Parks’ parents joined staff to develop the following ideas about how families can support student success. 


    • Talk to your student, ask them about what they are learning or what they are struggling with. Share your experiences in school and why you think education is important.

    • Sign up for and check Parent Portal frequently. Parent Portal is a onestop shop, where you can check grades, attendance, lunch menus and so much more. For more information, contact Ashley at 651-744-3425 or

    • Contact teachers and counselors to track your student’s progress:

    A-L     Mr. Kennedy    651-744-5106

    M-Z    Mr. Her             651-744-1247


    • Attend as many school events as possible. Try to commit to at least one per quarter.
