Agenda Books


Found in: parent-teacher communication; parental involvement

We use agenda books to communicate with parents. The book is formatted so that children can copy their assignments for each day and teachers/parents can write a short note. This book goes home every day and is signed by a parent. We have found it to be very successful.

As for volunteers, we let the parents know at the beginning of the year at Open House that they are welcome to come in our classroom to work with children and to also do clerical type activities. One of our teaching assistants wrote a grant for a Mentoring program, to supply games, etc. for mentors to use with children that are identified by our staff as needing extra support (not academics) for various reasons.

We also have a HOST Program (Helping One Student To Succeed) in place for 2nd graders. The Host program is one on one, for a 30-minute period each day. Our basic skills teacher and her teaching assistant prepare the materials. A lot of our HOST volunteers come from our senior center, churches, or other recommendations.
