There was a recent article published by the Huffing Post that really had us thinking. The article was called, 25 Ways to Ask Your Kids ‘So How Was School Today?’ Without Asking Them ‘So How Was School Today?’. It had some specific questions that parents could ask their children about their day that may provide more insightful answers than the typical, “good” response.
As a school, we have a commitment to not only the children who attend, but also to our families. We believe that in order for a child reach their full potential, all of the adults in that child’s life should be working together to meet the child’s needs. This is why we are committed to keeping our parents informed about what is happening each week around the school through direct teacher communication, shared photos and curriculum information on Montessori Compass, and school-wide news on our website.
We understand that children may not be able to fully articulate how school was today, or what the bead work they are doing now will prepare them for tomorrow, so we must work as a team, with open and frequent communication.
