Project Keep Surveys

Hello KEEPER Parents and Guardians!

I am writing to share surveys we would like to give to your children, our KEEPERS. One survey, labeled “primary,” is for children in grades K-2, and the other survey is for our upper elementary children in grades 3-5. These surveys are a part of our obligation as a member of MRAC (Monadnock Region Afterschool Collective) and as a recipient of a Monadnock United Way grant.

We are seeking your permission for your child to complete the appropriate level survey. Please review the surveys and sign the permission form if you feel comfortable having your child participate. The surveys can also be found to the right of this paragraph.

Thank you for completing the parent surveys – great response rate and suggestions! We will share results of all surveys with you.

Warm Regards,

Jan Barry, Director
