HOW WE COMMUNICATE . . .
Parent Night Meeting (in August) – Parents gather to meet one another; teachers distribute Parent Handbooks and share plans for the year. Parents complete a “Let’s Get Acquainted” form for teacher’s better understanding of each child.
Lesson Plans Posted Daily – Indicate the units of study for your child’s class, and show how planned activities promote specific curriculum goals and growth areas.
Personal Communications – Conversations with teachers, take-home notes, e-mails, and homework folders (K). We welcome communication anytime regarding any aspect of your child’s day, growth or behavior.
Shutterfly Classroom Sites – Each class has its own on-line Shutterfly Site. Parents use passwords (they create) to establish secure access to the account. The Classroom Shutterfly Site is a valuable communication tool through teacher announcements and posts, photos, volunteer sign ups, to name a few. In addition, a monthly calendar provides dates/times of daily activities, and sends e-mail reminders of recurring specials. For example, “Have your child bring his/her show-and-tell tomorrow for letter P” or “Remember child’s lunchbox tomorrow for Lunch Bunch Day!”
Snow/Severe Weather Closings or Delays – If it is necessary to close or delay our school due to severe weather, you can find notification on Fox 8, WXII12, and WFMY News 2, and the school telephone answering system.
