Principal's Coffee

On February 8th at 9:15, we will hold our first Principal’s Coffee event.  We will begin holding these events regularly to welcome new families.  These informal get-togethers will serve to inform incoming parents about our school.  Each session will present an overview of our school and we will include time for both discussion and questions. During the meeting we will review contact information, present demographics, provide information about school services, review our school goals, and inform parents about how they can volunteer and support school activities. Refreshments will be served.  Principal's Coffees are a great way to get to know your school leadership. We hope our new families will join us for this very special event.

Fall Parent and Guardian Feedback

Every year, we ask stakeholders to participate in providing our school with communication feedback in the Fall and Spring.  This feedback provides us with a better understanding of what the members of our school community think about how well and how effectively our school communicates.  The information collected from the form is designed to support a dialogue among all members of our school community about how we can take steps to better support our stakeholders and their needs.    

 

Please see the attached letter for more information and to view the results from our Fall Parent and Guardian Feedback.
