Parent Involvement Dinner Thank You!
A huge thank you for attending our Parent Involvement Dinner last Thursday evening. It was wonderful to have you and hear all of your different perspectives and ideas on what we can do to make Longwood a better place for students and families. Our Instructional Leadership team is meeting tomorrow morning and will take a look at all of the notes. We will then send you an email with the ideas shared and what we will focus on for the 19-20 school year. Our plan is to choose a few high leverage strategies for parent influence and parent involvement and really focus on doing those well.
Some of the ideas shared may fall under the umbrella of our PTA. If you are not a member, I highly encourage you to attend. This is where a majority of the fundraising and some of the events originate. You can become a member on Member Hub at https://longwoodpta1.memberhub.com/. Once you do this, you will receive emails about when the meetings are and about other upcoming PTA events. Meetings are typically once a month on a Thursday evening and are a great way to get involved!
I also wanted to share with you the list of events we already have scheduled for the school year. My hope is that you put them in your calendar now so you are able to attend!
