GOOD TO KNOW

Connect with Parents

Build trusting relationships with your district's parents with these tips: 

  • Always put yourself in their place. 
  • Introduce yourself to as many parents as you can at the beginning of the school year
  • Thank parents when they contact you.
  • Doublecheck everything you send out. Remember emails are easily forwarded on to others.
  • Hold your events around parents' schedules.
