Communication for Families

My students need a book display and a bulletin board.

My Students

We hope to create a welcoming "living room" where families can gain new information about how to help their students. This will be a place where parents/caregivers can gather to meet other parents as well as gain resources about our school, parenting, and ways to support their learner.

We hope to create a welcoming "living room" where families can gain new information about how to help their students.

This will be a place where parents/caregivers can gather to meet other parents as well as gain resources about our school, parenting, and ways to support their learner. We hope that our "living room" will help our families to feel more engaged and knowledgable about our school and ways to help their students to achieve academically and socially. This will be a positive place to gain resources and to network with other parents/caregivers.

My Project

We are asking for a bookshelf and bulletin board to display information for our parents to learn about their school and their learner. We want to provide a welcoming environment for our families to visit and learn. This is a revision of previous request.

We are working very hard to increase parental involvement in our school and within our families.

Please help us communicate with our school families by helping us provide a bulletin board and resource bookshelf!
