Our philopsophy encourages active communication and relationship building with our families. We strive to connect with families as they are an integral part of every student's growth and our school community.
Because our approach places strong emphasis on family and community, we provide ample opportunity for families to participate in their child’s education. We host a variety of family-oriented events throughout the school year, including seasonal events such as Gingerbread Jam, Thanksgiving pot-luck, a fall festival, end-of-year picnic and more. Twice a year, families are required to meet with teachers in a family-teacher conference forum. Families are also encouraged to participate in 'expert' visits to enhance our project currriculum, purchase books through Scholastic Books, and network with other families through the school famliy directory published at the beginning of the school year.
We will be launching 'The Read Across Campus" program in conjunction with our Little Free Library, where families are free to take a book and leave a book for at-home reading with their child. The Little Free Library will help to encourage literacy, engage the families in the relationships which occur while reading, and promote a love of books for all.
