At Chance, we understand that parents want to be partners with the school in the important job of educating their children. And there are many ways to do so!
In addition to providing nutritious snacks and chaperoning field trips, parents often contribute to learning. Your visit might be an informal one – just to observe your child at school. Or it may be a visit you have planned ahead with teachers to share a story, a hobby or profession, a collection – whatever is age-appropriate and meaningful. Families are asked to share family and cultural traditions to broaden students’ respect for the richness that differences bring to the world. On occasion, classes invite parents, grandparents and special friends for visits, presentations and performances to celebrate the year’s growth and development.
Equally important is the relationship that parents and teachers develop. It is in a child’s best interest that adults work together and channel their efforts productively, appropriately, and respectfully. Parents are encouraged to contact the school at any time and share questions or concerns.
