Parents…you’re doin’ good! :)

Hi parents,

Recently, I came across an initiative that is sponsored by Minute Maid and it made me think…our lives are chock full of things that pull us in so many directions, but then you add the fact that we are also parents to the mix and it can be overwhelming. This initiative is intended to have all parents take a moment in the course of a busy day to pat yourself on the back, but extends that by asking that each parent take an additional moment to figuratively or literally pat another parent on the back. I think we can all think of a time that it would have been awesome, and just what we needed, to hear someone say or receive a personal note that says, “Hey, you’re doing great!” So, I invite you to join in the fun of making someone else’s day! I’m not promoting Minute Maid, but love the idea behind their initiative and am including the note template for you.

And, “Hey, I think you’re doin’ great! We have the best parents at St. Laurence!” 🙂

Parent Interest Inventory

Hi parents,

I am attaching a link to a really quick  survey(literally 3 minutes!) regarding potential education topics of interest to you. Please take a moment to let me know what you would be interested in learning more about. As partners in doing what is best for your child, we are interested in  knowing what we can provide you with in the way of education! I would like to set up “Parent University” at least three times this school year. Last year, we had Standardized Test Scores 101 which I can repeat if you are interested, but would love to share additional information.
Thank you in advance! 🙂
Wendy
