Dear Cliffwood School families,
Well, the start of school is finally here! I sincerely hope that you and your child(ren) had a great summer and are as excited for this new year as I am. The staff here at Cliffwood have been working hard this summer to get the school ready for what we know will be a terrific year for all of our learners.
This year, I urge all parents to stay actively involved in their child's education. Research shows that there is a strong link between the amount of parent involvement and students' academic achievement. One easy strategy for improving students' performance in school is increasing communication between parents and teachers/staff. And so, please keep ongoing communication with your child's teacher(s) regularly during the year to stay informed about your child's academic progress, social/emotional growth, upcoming class activities and school events, and more. As the year gets rolling, talk with your child's teacher about your preference for communication (phone, email, writing notes) and keep your contact info up-to-date in the parent portal. By working together, we can all do a part to help our great Cliffwood students achieve success!
Please take a few minutes to read the newsletters below. LET'S HAVE A GREAT YEAR...WE'RE CLIFFWOOD PROUD!
