The home-school connection is important to us. We value strong parent communication with our teachers and encourage our parents’ involvement in their child’s education. We invite parents into the classroom each morning to participate in our drop off routines, and to be able to check in with their child’s teacher daily. Each teacher sends home a weekly newsletter describing what the class has worked on that week and what they will be doing the following week – with reminders about upcoming events or any details for the class. This helps to keep our parents in the loop with what is going on in the classroom each day.
We encourage parents to volunteer in the classroom as a ‘mystery reader’ or planning a ‘special day’ with your child. Each classroom also has a Room Parent to help with special events and in planning upcoming activities.
We also appreciate our parents’ involvement in the planning and promotion of our social events, fundraising events, and especially A Taste of Charlestown.
