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 record your participation and can check grades, attendance, lunch menus and so much more. For more information, contact Monica at 612-368-0873 or

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

    M-Z    Mr. Her             612-503-6223 (school cell)


    • Attend as many classes  as possible.
