Family engagement is a great way to build a strong connection between home and school for your child. Understanding the activities and routines that are being implemented at school can help your child maintain similar learning at home. Our schools strongly encourage families to come into the classroom for many different reasons to help cultivate more interaction and knowledge sharing.
Our summer camp themes offer multiple opportunities for families to come in and share their talents, traditions, or careers. Work with your school leaders to coordinate a time to make real-life connections between your skills and the summer camp themes we have planned. Some examples include:
If you have other unique talents, traditions, or skills we want to see them! It’s always a great way to create connections to real-life situations or careers.
Family-Teacher Conferences are hosted twice a year. They provide a great opportunity to ask questions and talk with your child’s teacher(s) about their development while reviewing the learning that is taking place in the classroom every day. Here are some questions you may consider:
During conferences, your teacher will show examples of work your child has completed throughout the year, as well as discuss the successes they’ve seen! It’s a great way to feel connected to the classroom and gain a better understanding of what happens when your child spends their days with us.
We encourage you to work with your school leaders to set up a time to volunteer in your child’s classroom. Our teachers can support you in leading an activity or you are welcome to bring in your child’s favorite book to read to the class. There are a lot of different ways to engage in your child’s learning – and we would love to have you!
We are excited to head into summer and we hope you are too! Building those strong home-school connections along the way will ensure your child’s learning stays on track and supports their overall development.
