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 Weekly – 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 any time 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.

Monthly Newsletter  – A monthly newsletter from the school office will give families a look at events from the previous month and general information about upcoming calendar items and events.

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.  Your teacher will also post severe weather notices on the class shutterfly site as well.
