Parent Participation

Be part of your child’s education, get involved…

…in your child’s class by

-Attending Parent Evenings:
Take part in the Parent Evenings scheduled 2-3 times during the school year. All classes have a meeting the beginning of the school year to meet the teachers and discuss the curriculum and other important information concerning the individual class and grade level. There might be up to two more meetings per year, if necessary.

-Attending Parent-Teacher Conferences:
Parent Teacher Conferences are held twice a year at JFKS, additional meetings can be scheduled with individual teachers if a student is having problems.

-Volunteering in the classroom:
Teachers may ask parents to help with class projects or reading groups, organize parties or accompany field trips. It will be a great experience for you to see for yourself what is going on in the classroom and your child will love to have you there. Join in the fun!
