Strong Partnership with Families
Fall is here! I love this time of year as the leaves begin to change, the weather turns cooler, and the school year is in full swing. Fall also means report cards and parent-teacher conferences. MRH is unique in the opportunity we provide families and teachers to form partnerships through the Home Visit initiative. In addition to Home Visits, parent-teacher conferences provide the opportunity to continue that partnership. The MRH Elementary staff looks forward to welcoming you on Tuesday, October 23rd and Thursday, October 25th for parent-teacher conferences.
As I shared throughout the summer at the Parent Coffee meetings and at our Parent Information Night, a school can never stop trying to develop partnerships with families and ensure strong avenues for communication. In August we invited our families to share their feedback about school communication. After reviewing the feedback from many of you, we have decided to make the following changes in an effort to improve school-wide communication:
- Transition from a monthly school newsletter to a bi-weekly school newsletter
- Create an email system for families to receive the newsletters in a paperless format
- Create both a Twitter and Facebook account for MRH Elementary that will provide another form of receiving updates from the school
In order to make these ideas a reality, we need your help! Attached to the October newsletter you will find an “Opt In” form, where you may indicate if you would like to receive the school newsletter in a paperless (email) form. If you do not return the completed form, we will continue to provide your family with a paper copy. I look forward to visiting with you throughout the fall and welcome your ideas and suggestions.
