I have four of my own children, this year entering Grades 6, 5, 3 and 1, each with their own unique set of strengths and challenges. The first day of school (drop off, finding classes/teachers, seeing old friends) is just too hectic of a time to convey these observations and I have often wished that I had a way to let my children’s teachers know about them before school started.
Three years ago, I started sending out a parent survey about a week or so before the start of school. I want to get parental input on questions like: “What is the most important thing I should know about your child?” and “How has the overall ‘school’ experience been for your child?” as well as knowing what commitments my students might have outside of the classroom. I have found the feedback gained from these questionnaires invaluable in helping to provide a welcoming environment and to help transition my students to Grade 7.
I will be sending an email out to all parents who have included an email in their registration AND have filled out the anti-spam paperwork but for those who have not received the email and would like to provide input, please feel free to access the survey below:
I look forward to working with all families as we launch the 2019-2020 school year. I am so excited to be back at Holy Trinity and am looking forward to September 3!
