Visits, Volunteer Opportunities, and Conferences
We believe that parents are one of our most valuable reaources, thus we welcome and encourage you to participate in your child's school activities as often as possible. Parents are welcome to visit at any time--no prior notice is required.
Each class welcomes the opportunity to have room parents to help teachers coordinate parties, design bulletin boards, compile the school newsletter, ans perform other tasks as needed. In you are interested in assisting in other ways, please inform the school or your child's directress. Any parent volunteering in the classroom or on fieldtrips must have a background central registry check on file in the school office. Parents are encouraged to complete this form at the beginning of the school year, as this process may take up to three weeks to complete.
Parent-teacher conferences will be held twice a year, once in November, and again in March (see school calendar and or newsletter for specific dates).
