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 activities each school year. Hanger Hall encourages each family to contribute 10 volunteer hours each school year, 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 and Hall Ball each year to the extent they are comfortable. Our goal is 100% participation.
