DEVELOPING A PARTNERSHIP WITH MOUNT DANDY FAMILIES
This part of our website provides information and links to resources for current families.
Our teaching and support staff are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure all children can reach their highest potential. We recognise that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for the children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that they:
1) Attend school daily and arrive on time ready for the day’s learning program. Our music and first bell sound at 8:50 to allow time for students to make their way into class and get prepared for the day’s program. Our second bell rings at 9.00 and any students arriving after this bell must sign in late at the office;
2) Act in accordance with the school’s RICH values (respect, independence, community spirit and honesty). Please reinforce these values at home and through your own actions;
3) Complete all tasks set by teachers and read daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills; and
4) Share experiences of their day with you so that you are in the loop with what is going on at school.
Your child’s class teacher is your first port-of-call. Throughout the year, should the need arise to speak directly to a staff member you can contact us and we will connect you. Alternatively, you can use email to communicate with our staff. Please do not contact staff via Facebook or use text messaging unless this has been mutually agreed for an educational reason. Please allow us time to respond as during school hours we concentrate our efforts on teaching and learning.
