5th grade teacher Ms Nelson, tech support Mr Gull and I are hosting a
mandatory 5th grade parent meeting. Please plan to attend either Wednesday, October 5th at 5 pm or Thursday, October 6th at 7:45 am (supervision will be provided for 5th graders and siblings only). Topics will include behavioral expectations, internet safeguards at school, and bullying. We need your cooperation and have scheduled both of these at different times in order to reach all of our parents.
volunteer protocols. If you are a volunteer on campus, you are present to help a teacher or a program. If you see something in a classroom and have a concern, particularly with a child's behavior, the discussion should be with the classroom teacher or, if serious, with me. We realize that sometimes it is tempting to tell other parents about what you observed with a child, but that is not the role of a volunteer. We realize these are all judgment calls but we need your assistance. Observations out of context and shared in the parking lot jeopardize the volunteer/teacher relationship. Please help us help our staff by focusing any concerns with staff and not with other parents. We appreciate your support.
