All parents are given a Parents' Handbook and a School Calendar at the beginning of the school year. There is a Round-up before school starts each fall, which gives parents and their children an opportunity to meet the teachers, fellow students, and their parents. It also helps new students to become familiar with our facility. We send home a monthly newsletter that updates parents about upcoming events, as well as an article for parents of preschoolers. We send home notes about field trips, special activities in the classroom, etc. Teachers relay information about each child to the parents. This includes anecdotes about what the child said or did during class, things they may have done for the first time, concerns about behavior, etc. There are also annual parent/teacher conferences in the spring. Parents are always welcome to meet with teachers, if they have a special concern about their child. Notes are posted about monthly screenings (speech, vision, hearing, etc.) at LISD. We conduct mission projects to help disadvantaged families in our area and have an annual St. Jude Trike-a-thon.
