Kohler PK-8 School recognizes that parents & families are their children's first and most influential teachers and that continued parent & family involvement in the education of children contributes greatly to student achievement and a positive school enviornment.
In order to engage parents/families in their children's education, the staff at Kohler does the following:
- Encourage parents/families to serve as volunteers in the school, attend student functions and school meetings, participate in site councils, and other advisory councils.
- Regularly communicate with families regarding events, homework, academics and behavior through a school wide weekly newsletter, individual classroom newsletters, the NTI phone calling system, monthly parent meetings, progress reports each trimester, and individual phone calls home and home visits.
- Offer parent/family educational opportunities including: the Latino Family Literacy Project, Community Based English Tutoring, weekly access to the Library Media Center, classes offered through Support Services around a variety of topics, and classes offered to our kindergarten and pre-school parents by our Curriculum Support Teacher focusing on literacy skills.
Kohler students love to share the joy of reading with their families! Family Fridays are days when parents and family members are encouraged to come in and read with their students. The times are from 8:10 AM until 8:40 AM. After 8:40 AM families are encouraged to meet in the cafeteria for coffee, socialization with other Kohler families, and a drawing to win fun prizes.
Thank you to all of the families that joined us during our Family Fridays this year! We look forward to seeing you during Family Fridays next year!
