“We create a partnership between parents, teachers, and students, knowing that parental involvement is key to the success of the students and the school.”
This last component of our mission is acknowledging the fact that we are a village. The more we all work together, the better off our children will be. Growing up is hard. Parenting is hard. School can be hard. Sometimes we are walking a tightrope; other times it feels like we are in a mosh pit. We have to communicate with each other, trust each other, respect each other, and support each other to get through this messy, complicated, foggy journey.
We encourage you to come to games, field trips and events so that you know the kids, the teachers and other parents–both at your child’s age, but also older and younger. We encourage you to share your concerns with us, and we will share ours with you. Let us know what’s going on in your children’s lives. All of their experiences are interrelated, and it helps us nurture and teach the “whole” child if we know the whole child. The better we know your children, the better we can meet their needs.
Additionally, as an independent school, we are completely dependent on your support. We don’t have a parish, synagogue or government to back us up. So we are dependent on your support (your time, your talents, and your treasure!), both as current parents and after your kids graduate, in order to grow and thrive.
