Discussing effective communication between families and the school community is one thing. “Walking the walk” is quite another. Recently, Hudson Country Montessori School parents responded to the following two inquiries:
- Do you experience being “seen and heard” when communicating with school staff?
- Do you feel Hudson understands your child well?
Here are some response excerpts:
“We definitely feel that the teachers and staff at Hudson share meaningful information with us and yes we feel seen and heard. Hudson is a warm and inviting environment. There are always friendly staff members in the hall to greet you with a smile.”
“My husband and I feel that every HCMS staff member is approachable for any conversation. If I have a question or concern I’ve been able to catch teachers before or after school by the classrooms or by email.”
“School responses are prompt and helpful.”
“We’ve attended the Head of School “Meet and Greet” with Mark and Megan Meyer along with other parents. There they asked us as parents what topics we would like to hear spoken about at upcoming meetings from speakers they plan to bring in. They wanted our input and opinions as parents of the school.”
“I would definitely say that my children’s teachers do understand them. I see a mutual respect between the students and the teachers, staff and parents which I feel is important.”
“We just finished up conferences this week with our children’s teachers. Each teacher had a good understanding of who our children are academically and personally.”
“I love peeking into a Hudson classroom and seeing each child working on a different project or lesson made from their individualized plan. That’s what tells you every child there is seen and heard.”
Looking (and sounding!) good. What has been your experience? We’d love to know.
