Ways to Stay Connected at Your Child's School
Your child’s backpack
Chances are you’ll learn about most school news and functions through newsletters and notes your child brings home in her backpack (or check out your schools Vitrual Backpack on the school website). When she gets home from school, ask her to empty her backpack — at least a few times a week — so you can sort through any papers meant for you.
Try reading through them with your child. That way, you can talk about all the things going on at school. This will help you remember important events — and let your child know that you are interested in what goes on at school.
The school website
Our schools have a website where they post the latest school news and information. If you don’t know it, click on the schools tab above to locate your childs school website. At our schools, every teacher maintains a web page, so you might even be able to keep up with homework assignments, field trips, and other information about your child’s classroom.
The school newsletter
Many schools put out a regular newsletter (often, once a week) that has all the news for the upcoming week. It may come home in your child’s backpack (so don’t forget to check!). But more and more schools send their 'newsletter' via social media. Check to see if your child's school has a Facebook, Twitter or YouTube account and start following!
The class parent
Ask your child’s teacher if there’s a “class parent,” or someone who has volunteered to let other parents know about class events and organize volunteer events. The class parent is the person to check with about what kind of help the teacher might need in the classroom. He or She will also know about any upcoming events. Make sure to keep her email or phone number handy in case you have questions. Also look for classroom groups through Facebook or Remind101. Many of our teachers use these avenues to communicate specifically to thier class parents.
Feel free to ask your child’s teacher either in parent-teacher meetings, at pickups or drop-offs, or through email or phone if there are school or classroom events you should know about. If it seems like you’re often missing important information, ask the teacher what the best way is to keep informed about school news.
