Dear St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School Families,

This week’s exploration of the Parent Survey looks at Communication. The results are seen in the chart below. The survey statements read as follows with the percentage of “agree” or “strongly agree” being graphed:

  • Communication from teachers meets our expectations – 68%
  • Communication from administration and advancement meets our expectations – 84%
  • We feel informed about school events – 86%
  • We feel informed about school policies and procedures – 81%
  • We find the new format of The Messenger to be user-friendly – 86%
  • We find the website to be a useful communication tool – 74%

As our mission statement shares, our partnership with parents is of paramount importance to us and we realize that the first step to a successful partnership is communication. While these graphs demonstrate good communication, we strive for better. We have already put in place new policies and guidelines to improve communication on our end. Please also reach out to teachers, staff and administration when you have a concern. We want to address any questions you may have.

Only by His Grace,

Veronica D. Tucker
