Virtual Parent Orientation

As we are beginning the new school year, I want to make sure you have had the opportunity to view our classroom’s Virtual Parent Orientation.  The link for the "What's so Special About Specials?" orientation can be found right here on my blog!


This year most elementary schools in Park Hill decided to try a “Virtual” Parent Orientation approach due to the significant decline in parent attendance maintaining an average of 60% attendance at English Landing during the past three years. Before English Landing transitioned to this “Virtual” Parent Orientation approach, the English Landing Leadership Team facilitated two focus group meetings with PTA Executive Board members and spent much time in Leadership Team meetings preparing for this change collaboratively. 


At the end of September we are excited to host a Mighty Math Week, so parents will have the opportunity to join their child for a math lesson in the classroom on September 30, October 1 or October 2.  Then on October 3 from 6:30-7:30pm, parents and their child are invited to come back to EL to participate in a math lesson if they were unable to attend the regular math lesson during the day.  Hopefully this event will give parents another reason to visit English     Landing and spend time with their child in an academic setting.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
