Partnership is more than showing an interest in your child’s schooling. It is communicating with your child’s teacher about your child and also learning about your child from the teacher. In turn, the teacher learns about your child from you.
When parents and teachers both celebrate the successes of the child and can also have clear and honest communication about challenges the child may be facing at home or in school, the child is the winner.
A parents first point of contact with any questions or concerns about their child or the school should be the homeroom teacher or, if appropriate, the specialist teacher concerned.
