November and December are both very busy months at the school. We have performances, field trips, clubs and guests coming in the classroom. It's easy to miss information. What we've learned this year is that email just isn't enough to stay engaged with teachers, students and parents. Our administration team has been looking for ways to improve communication since our first staff meeting back in January. That is why we are launching a new system of communication, it's called Klassroom.
Klassroom is a mobile and web application that reinvents communication between parents and teachers by making it simple, instant and secure.
• Teachers can share class information, photos, videos, documents, homework, polls, lists or events (school trips, etc.) with parents.
• Parents receive instant information on their mobile.
• Parents can notify the teacher of an absence, a delay, ask a question or make an appointment request.
Klassroom is respectful of the regulations, the protection of personal data, storage of data, and other personal information.
Klassroom is an easy download onto your phone. Our administration has invited parents to join a class however, you can also search for our school and request to join. It's free and easy to use.
For the remainder of 2018, we will be sharing information in the following four ways:
• our website and blog
• our Facebook school page
• in Klassroom
• by email.
This will give us the opportunity to try the Klassroom system and be ready for improved communication in 2019.
Furthermore, our blog will serve as our monthly newsletter so expect to see more posts on our website. Follow the blog if you'd like to read about our classes, curriculum, projects and more.
