Here at Ashbrook, this statement is posted in many places around the building: Collaboration and communication with consistency lead to community.
In an effort to be a better communicator with students and parents, I took inspiration from my colleagues in the Middle School who created informative web pages for their classes. Launching this website was a pretty big deal for me, and I work consistently at maintaining it and keeping things up-to-date. I hope you're finding it useful.
I also realized that the Lower School teachers do a wonderful job communicating with parents and students through their weekly newsletters. I'm taking inspiration from them, and launching a newsletter of my own. Like the website, it is a work-in-progress, so I'll be making content adjustments until I find the correct balance of information for weekly updates.
Please check your family folders in the atrium today. The first edition of the newsletter will be there for your review.
And if you haven't yet signed up for parent-teacher conferences, you'll have to pass the sign-up tables in order to get your newsletter, so take a moment to set up an appointment.
