Dear Community,

Let me be the first to welcome you to Euclid Preparatory School. I am very proud of our dedicated staff and enthusiastic learners, and I’m pleased that you have chosen our school for your child’s education.

As demands of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their fullest potential. I believe that all of us–the school and the community–must work together as an extended family to ensure success for all our students. It’s our responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful.

One of our most important responsibilities to you is that we keep you informed of all that is taking place at the school. One of the ways we do this is regularly updating our school website. You can find up-to-date events, and additional information, Another critical communication tool that we use to keep parents informed is Class Dojo. Please make sure you have signed up to receive real-time updates about events and your scholar’s progress.

I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
