Communication between Home and School

Meet-the-Teacher

Progress Report and Report Cards
Students in grades 1-6 will receive a progress report in the fall and 2 formal report cards a year. Senior Kindergarten students receive one in February and one in June while Junior Kindergarten students receive a report card in June only. Teachers prepare the ‘Comments’ sections to reflect students’ strengths and weaknesses with suggestions on how to improve achievement.
 

Open House
During Education Week, an Open House is held when parents are invited to sit in on classes and to participate/observe special activities.
 

School Newsletter
The Administration team prepares school newsletters each year, each with vital information. All newsletters are available on the school website and are e-mailed to parents. Please review them for news relevant to the school/students.

Classroom Communication

Teachers communicate in a variety of ways. A classroom newsletter, class email, twitter, website and/or classroom blog are a variety of means by which teacher communicate on a regular basis outlining classroom programming, updates on classroom activities and special events.

Permission Forms
Permission forms are sent home to be signed for any class trips or sports events so that parents will be aware, in advance, that children are leaving the regular school environment. Please return the signed portion to the school and keep the upper portion as a reminder of the upcoming field trip.
 

Meetings with Teachers
We encourage parents to request a meeting with the teacher at any time throughout the school year. We appreciate opportunities to work as a team for the benefit of your child.

Phone Calls 
Please feel free to telephone the school with your questions, concerns and/or compliments. The answering service is on 24 hours a day, so leave a message at your convenience and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
 

Discussion with the Principal or Vice-Principal
Principals and Vice-principals advocate for each child in the school and always have time to meet with students or parents.
If you have a concern within the classroom setting, please ensure that you have discussed this with the teacher before bringing the matter to the Principal or Vice-Principal so that you are aware of the child's and the teacher's perspective. In a large school, regrettably walk-in meetings may not be the most effective manner to have a good conversation on a matter. The Vice-Principal is only available for half of the day as she has teaching responsibilities for the other half of the day. Your meeting with one of the Administration team, may be more effective if you phone ahead of time so that they can arrange their schedules to give you the time and attention you deserve.
