Questions & Communication

Communication with your child’s teacher and administration helps to prevent small questions from becoming large issues. Throughout the school year, as questions emerge, stay in close contact with the teacher. Questions can often be answered over the phone, but if a meeting is required, please work to set a time to meet. Setting a time ensures that the teacher does not have conflicting appointments and that the teacher has time to reflect on your concerns or gather the necessary work samples. 

At the administrative level, Mrs. Bennett welcomes meetings with parents; however setting a meeting time is very helpful. It ensures that we have had time to do classroom observations, meet with the teacher and set aside the time required.
