Ways to be involved
1- Go to Open House. Listen to the information Teachers and School Personnel are giving you.
What can you expect at Open House? Teachers will invite you into the classroom, you will hear from Ms. Merlin, Principal as she welcomes you to the school, explains what Title One school means and goes over some important information. Your child’s teacher will then take some time to go over expectations of the classroom.
2- Attend school events
There are events every month. They range from opportunities to learn what’s going in the school such as Technology Night, or family events such as Cookies with Santa. You can go to sports events, concerts, student showcase events, parent teacher meetings, awards events, and All Pro Dad breakfast to name a few.
Calusa offers information via the school Website, Facebook, Twitter, Newsletters, the school marque, connect calls to your phone and information that goes home in the Tuesday folder. If you need information translated, please let us know.
