Resources for St. Paul's Parents

HOMEROOM PARENTS

At the beginning of the school year, one or two Homeroom Parents will be chosen for each classroom. Please feel free to volunteer for this wonderful opportunity! This person(s) will act as a point of contact for all of the parents in the class, will help support the teacher when necessary, will assist in the coordination of classroom holiday parties, and will take responsibility for the classroom’s participation in school-wide events and fundraisers. The ability to make phone calls to the other parents in the class will be a primary responsibility.

HOME VISITS

At the beginning of each school year you and your child will receive a home visit from your child’s teacher. The purpose of the home visit is to begin the link between preschool and home. It is a time for you to ask questions, share your expectations, and discuss any concerns that you may have about your child in preschool with your child’s teacher. It is also a time for the teacher to meet your child in their own home where they are the most comfortable. A home visit at the beginning of each school year provides your child with a warm and nurturing first experience with their teacher and also encourages a comfortable separation from home and transition into the new year.

PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES

There are two formal parent teacher conferences for children during the school year, one in the fall and one in the spring.  The purpose of conferences is to share information about your child’s adjustment to school, as well as their progress and development during the school year.   Additional conferences may be arranged with the teacher and/or the director at any time the parent feels that it would be helpful.

WELCOME COFFEE

Each year during the first regular school day (the actual first day is always a visiting day for you and your child together), parents are invited to a welcome coffee.  This is a time for you to enjoy coffee and refreshments during the first “short hours” day and to meet other parents in the school.  It is also a time for you to learn about some of the many volunteer opportunities for the upcoming school year.

CLASS WISHLISTS

The school has a wish list of items available in the Director's Office. In recent years we have been enhancing our Outdoor Classroom.

How do I get connected?

There are a number of ways that you can make connections with other parents at St. Paul’s such as the beginning of the year welcome coffee, being a home room parent, helping out with the Fall Fundraiser, or becoming a member of the school’s board of trustees.

Typically each class has two class meetings where all the parents from the individual classes gather to get to know one another and to receive information from the home room parent and from the teacher.

Finally, for safety reasons and to encourage communication between home and school, parents and care givers are asked to drop off and pick their children up at the class room door. As a result, there is ample time and opportunity to meet other parents during drop off and pick-up.
