Communication: School to Home
The School Website
The website is maintained through the office.
The Village Voice
Office staff produce a weekly newsletter called Village Voice. It is emailed to families on Fridays. It is also posted on our website, Village Voice Newsletter. Paper copies are available in the office.
Every family in the school has one mailbox. Last names of students are listed as well as stickers to denote which grade a family's student/s are in. Flyers, class communication, and other information can be found in your family’s mailbox. Mailboxes are located outside the office.
It is important for Village School parents to be closely connected to the progress their children are making at school. To this end, teachers provide information on how the school’s unique curriculum is aligned with the state and national standards. A wide range of opportunities exist that allow parents to review progress and interact with their children’s teachers, through home visits, regular progress reports, semi-annual parent/teacher conferences, district and state assessment results, recommendations for Homework Club (Title I assistance), comprehensive reports and recommendations at the conclusion of each school year, calls home as needed, or recommendations for summer school as needed.
Teachers will inform parents about goings on in the classroom through parent meetings, class newsletters, email lists, blogs, bulletin boards, phone trees, or other methods. Please contact your class teacher and set up a time to meet if you have something that needs attention.
