Family Visits

Why do we visit homes?

Home visits are a unique opportunity for real two-way communication between home and school. They acquaint the teacher with a child's family and culture, and provide a familiar setting for listening to parents' concerns and recognizing their contributions to the home-school partnership.

By visiting students and their families at home, our teachers help building strong communication and a caring classroom. Teachers talk about student progress, programs and planning; parents provide priceless feedback and input: and students improve both academically and socially.

Home visits serve a variety of goals including:

- Welcome new families to the school community.

- Survey parents for their views on school policies and programs.

- Report on student progress in school.

- Solve specific problems.

- Demonstrate home-learning activities to parents.
