During the admissions process parents often ask about the relationship between the school and the parents. We are a partnership. Clearly it is in your daughter’s best interest to have one voice when it comes to school, social situations, and expectations. There are several times during the year that we schedule as parent/teacher conference dates, but we encourage you to be in contact with your daughter’s teacher(s) at any time. Teachers are always accessible via email and in person for face-to-face meetings. Our small size and the ability of the girls to interact with all the teachers on a daily basis enable us to know your daughter and her routine. If we notice your daughter is “off her game” we will contact you to let you know what we are observing. Likewise if there is a situation at home that may be having an impact upon your daughter, it is helpful for us to be aware of that as well.
We do encourage our parents to volunteer for a few hours each school year. Hanger Hall does not mandate a specific number of hours and there are a number of ways you can volunteer outside of PTC meetings. Likewise we do expect that our parents will participate in the Annual Fund Campaign each year to the extent they are comfortable. Our goal is 100% participation.
We are happy to announce that the PTC now has a full slate of officers for the 2014-2015 school year! They are: Angie Cullen, President; Cathie Robbins , Vice President; April DeLac, Treasurer; and Caprice Hamlin-Krout, Secretary. In addition, we have the following Class Representatives:Lisa Smith – 8P and Tania Kriegler – 8G, Copeland Rudolph – 7P and Natale Polinko- 7G, and Erin McLoughlin 6P andCheryl Blum-6G.
Support from home is paramount to your daughter’s success. There will be times throughout the year we contact you about your daughter and your timely response will be greatly valued.
