Dr. Frandsen

Dear Minor Family,

I want to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year!  Thank you personally for all of your efforts as parents to ensure learning continues through this pandemic.  While last year presented some challenges, in many ways we grew stronger as individuals and as a school community. Many of you were able to see and hear first-hand the great instruction that is happening in our school each day while instruction was provided digitally to your living room, kitchen, car, and other locations. Thank you for being there for your children!  The county and local school continue to have regular communication regarding your student’s health and safety and we will continue to make adjustments as needed.  We ask for your continued support as we navigate this ever-changing environment. 

Communication is key during times like these to make sure your student gets the help they need. Please reach out to us if your student is experiencing any difficulties at any time.  We are here for you! 

I encourage you to reach out to our Parent Center to become familiar with the resources that are available to you to support your child with his/her academic progress on a day-to-day basis. I encourage you to read with your kids each night (in English or your home language), review their homework, and check their grades regularly through the parent portal and student eCLASS pages. If you do not know how to help your student with their homework, don’t panic…taking simple steps such as setting a specific time and space for homework each day goes a long way.  If you have concerns or need suggestions, please reach out to your teacher.  The parent teacher relationship is so important to your student’s success.  If you have questions on how to access your student’s grades, please ask for assistance.  We want everyone to have the information they need to make the best decisions for your students.  We know that when students, teachers and parents are working together, great things happen.  We are going to have a great year at Minor because of our great students, great teachers, and great parents!   

If you have any questions including enrollment requirements and general school information, please feel free to contact the main office at 770-925- 9543. Thank you for your continued partnership! This is our year to SHINE!

Your proud Principal,

Scott Frandsen
