You and your teachers are posting signs, sending home hand-written daily reports, notes and printed newsletters, yet parents still overlook the important stuff.
You have assessments, meetings, and conferences a few times per year, but they really don't show off the miracles that are happening each day in the classroom.
Your teachers could send out emails and text messages, but releasing your parents' contact information to everyone in your school can create serious issues around privacy and confidentiality. Plus, how can you know what information is being sent and to whom?
Therefore, sometimes parents undervalue the quality of your teachers, your program, your school, and the positive effects they are having on their children... simply due to an absence of communication.
