    • Communicate individual student accomplishments to parents through Weekly Calendar of Events, Thursday’s Folders, Special Progress Reports, Monthly Parent Contacts, and Special Notes.
    • Convey instructional thrusts and initiatives to parents at school-wide meetings and parent conferences.
    • Focus on the development of the whole child.
