Part of my intention in writing this blog is to help foster the home-school connection that is so often spoken about in educational circles. This coming week at T.E.S., parents have an opportunity to attend our annual Parent Information Night, sometimes called “Open House.”
This is a great time to start the year off right. Parents, teachers, and administrators meeting early in the year to begin forming relationships that help ensure student success. It’s so important to put a face with a name and to take those first steps toward an open and friendly connection that can only benefit your child in the coming year!
At the Parent Information Night, classroom teachers will present for a short while about the classroom, curriculum, and student learning. Special Subject Teachers will also be available in their classrooms to speak to their curriculum domain and what that looks like for your child. A full listing of grades and times can be found on our main website, and a building map will be provided when you arrive.
Usually there are representatives from the PTO and the Ed Foundation available to let parents know about opportunities in these organizations, and to encourage volunteering and participation in school related events. Please be on the lookout for these dedicated parents and consider joining!
Lastly, if you are concerned or need to speak with your child’s teacher about something specific to your child, please schedule a separate time to follow up by phone, or in person. Parent Information Night provides a quick snapshot of the teacher and classroom, but should not be used for individual conferencing.
I hope to see you on Wednesday!
