Welcome to Link’s Parent Center

Link believes that a student’s success is enhanced by a strong partnership between school and home. This section is designed to provide parents and guardians with tools to monitor their child’s academic progress and to help their child succeed in school.

Link to Home, our parent newsletter

Link to Home is Link’s parent newsletter and it includes important dates, reminders, class activities, student awards, and announcements. Students take Link to Home in their Parent Communications Envelope (purple plastic envelope) every Friday (or the last day of the school week.) Click here for the latest issue.
