STUCO vice president Shorettalynn Mendiola also welcomed everyone with her own impromptu speech of encouragement and challenging the parents to engaged in their children’s extracurricular activities as well.
The parents were reminded to help build a strong school culture by being actively involved in their children’s education and simply making education a top priority in their daily conversation at home so they can succeed and also stay focus on the right direction and not be influenced by the negative and evil things that may lead them to failure.
The school administration shared their student achievement data, importance of the accreditation process, and other data about the school.
The school is always grateful with the turnout of parents and guardians, staff, and students during the monthly meeting. Still, they are encouraging the parents to please engage and be involved in anyway possible.
Barcinas encourages parents to partner with Hopwood as their is their duty to help make the school become the best learning institution for the students they serve each school year. (PR)
