Have you hugged a PIG today?

Or, why I think you should join the Parent Involvement Group

Since the dawn of time (give or take), parents, teachers and administrators have been trying to figure out what the other is thinking. “What IS going on up there?” Truth be told, communication has been an area we receive a lot of feedback about, but why? How can we fix it? More email? Less email? More meetings? More committees? More karaoke machines? Carrier pigeons? Ack! What now?

No really, help us.

One of the main tenants of The Little School is community.... that’s you. We simply can not do it alone, nor do we want to.  We have an amazing pool of resources in our parents, and we’re in the process of harnessing that tremendously awesome energy to help keep the “little” in The Little School. We want your input on what YOU want your school to look like. This is a great place to tease out issues, and get more clarity on why we do what we do. Are we doing “it” perfect? Nope, but we are reeeally close, and we are asking for your help.

Last month the Parent Involvement Group discussed community events, fundraising for scholarships, July transitions,  parent-teacher conferences, Earth Day/gardening day, and parent education workshops. We haven’t even scratched the surface. In fact, we are still working on the plan to get to the core.

We really would love to see you, however I understand getting out of the house is difficult for families with young kids. I encourage you to read the minutes and contact your parent ambassador with any input.

When is our next meeting? I’m SO glad you asked: Monday March 5th at 7pm in the TLS dining room.  We hope to see you there!
