Parental contact and communication are essential to the success of our school. Teachers maintain weekly contact through class newsletters and the principal communicates at least monthly via a newsletter with all parents. Parental groups meet regularly to help identify and address the needs of their school. Parents as Partners, the Box Top committee, and the Campbell’s Labels committee are avenues where parents are helping. A monthly parent meeting time has been established to help with the communications between the home and school. Parents also have active involvement with Family Fun Nights, conferences, and special events that they plan and carry out.
Each classroom has computers in them and teachers use supplemental software for skill development and review. Each classroom is connected to the Internet for the expanded resources that are available. All students receive contact experience with technology during their instruction at the Ashkum Early Literacy Center. A reading specialist is present at the school to assist students and teachers to master the early literacy skills necessary for future success. A teacher works with the kindergarten daily for introduction to Fine Arts and Motor Development, which is coordinated with regular kindergarten instruction for reading and mathematics readiness.
