We all want good communication, but often we think of it in one direction. We want others to communicate with us, but we don’t always think to communicate with them.
In this writing I hope to outline our communication, and I would love your feedback on ways we can improve. I also want to encourage you to communicate with your child’s teacher or the school office. Let’s make it a two-way street.
Each week, Mrs. Pooley sends out the Friday Tidbits. This provides you with most of the general information about Epiphany. Each home room teacher also sends out a weekly email or some equivalent describing what’s happening specifically in that class. I write a blog geared more to philosophical issues. This year about 25% of our students are new to Epiphany, so I plan to write explanations of our policies.
If you have a question about something, you are always encouraged to ask. Begin with your child’s homeroom teacher or the teacher of the subject in question. If you do not feel your issue was resolved adequately, you are welcome to talk to me. I am available each morning greeting students outside the school and am always eager for your conversation.
We are small enough that within a couple weeks I will know the names of all students and most parents. We want you to feel right at home here.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
In His Service,
Tim Miesner, Principal
