Rather than several formal, structured meetings led by the board with limited parent participation, Home & School meetings will now be limited to three per year and have a much more informal structure. Each will begin with “Quick Communications” from the board and/or school staff pertaining to high-interest topics for Elementary School parents. January’s topic will be a detailed update on progress and format of the new Intermediate School. This will be followed by an informal, social gathering where parents will be able to ask board members or staff individual questions or simply interact with other parents. Our January meeting (slated for Tuesday, 1/15) will include pizza and beverages provided by Home & School.
