Looking to link with other Vernon Elementary parents
It's that time of year for us parents of 4 and maybe 5 year olds... Time to check the listings for Kindergarten Round-up dates if we're enrolling our children in the neighborhood school. This can be a nerve-wracking time for many parents, but I know that our neighborhood school has a strong community and parental involvement level, which is why I'm so excited to register my child there. Erica, however, is trying to look into ways of connecting with other parents at her neighborhood school to strengthen the parental and community and involvement. She writes:
My daughter will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall 08'. We are thinking about having her attend her neighborhood school, Vernon Elementary. We are just amazed that only 42% of the Vernon neighborhood kids attend their neighborhood school. My husband and I would like to set up a meeting with other Vernon families. We would like to work with other families in the neighborhood to encourage more parent involvement at Vernon Elementary. That seems to be the biggest problem with this school.
So, if there are any other parents thinking of sending their kids to Vernon, maybe drop her a line. I bet she's not the only one out there looking to work on this project...
