On behalf of the faculty and staff at Ivy Hawn, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year! We are looking forward to partnering with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/ she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience 2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers 3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills 4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life 5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject 6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college
Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:
1) Reading with children who need extra help 2) School-wide events 3) Student recognition events 4) Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers
We have provided this Parent/Student Handbook so that you and your child can sit down and review this important information together. If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your child’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. The Parent/Student Handbook will also be available online at www.ivyhawnschool.org.
I feel honored to be a part of this school family and look forward to a safe, productive, and successful school year!
