Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Weekly, I send home a newsletter to keep parents informed of what happens in the classroom setting. I schedule conferences as parents request and have an open-classroom policy--parents are welcomed to visit their child's classroom anytime.

Parents Say They are Encouraged to:

  • Sit on the board of trustees
  • Fundraise
  • Are able to visit the school anytime we want
  • Go on field trips
  • Volunteer in the classroom
  • Receive newsletters

Modes of Communication

  • Notes
  • Phone Calls
  • Voice Mail
  • Email
  • Special Meetings
  • Two or More Regular Conferences
  • Drop-Off
  • Pick-Up
  • Regular newsletter/printed updates circulated to the whole school


Separation is Handled through:

  • Small group sessions
  • Abbreviated schedule at start of school year
