Head of School Updates, October 18 2019

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Friends,

We look forward to welcoming you to our Parent-Teacher Conferences next week on Thursday Oct. 24. There will be no school for students on the day. You can read more about the importance of these conferences and the sign-up procedures for each division within the Upper School or Lower School Principal’s Post.

Conferences provide meaningful time to have an important conversation regarding your child’s growth. In order to use that time effectively, I encourage parents to read this helpful tip sheet (below) put out by the Harvard Family Research Project.

Parent Satisfaction Survey

In September parents completed their first monthly parent satisfaction survey. Two weeks ago we held our first monthly parent focus group to discuss the results from that survey. You can learn more about the results from last week’s blog post.

On Monday we will be sending out the October parent satisfaction survey. It is a fast one-question survey and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Parents are invited to attend our next parent focus group on November 7th at 10:30AM, where we will discuss the October survey in more detail. 

Halloween Bash

Next Saturday, October 26th we are having a Halloween Bash. PAFA is working hard to put together a great event for our community. All families are welcome to attend! Please contact Maria Trantow at pdpafa.eventco@scis-china.org if you would like to volunteer for the event. Any help would be much appreciated.
