Exciting Communication Initiative at Ferris
Enhancing School and Parent Communication
Ferris is excited to be running a pilot program in a few of classrooms that involves enhancing communication between the school and home. With the use of technology, some of our classrooms will be providing a window into their child’s day at school by sending pictures, videos and feedback specifically intended for the parents of each child in the classroom. What a great way to understand how your child is progressing in the classroom. This new innovative way of communicating is through a program called Fresh Grade. This program allows teachers to send work samples to the child’s parents using email. Each parent will receive communication from the school that is very specific to their own child only. We currently have seven of our twenty-one classrooms starting to use this program at Ferris. If your child brings home information or a survey regarding communication or Fresh Grade, we hope that you will participate.
