Proactive parent communication at Island Lake is an important aspect of our work. Our primary goals are to:

Meet Your Teacher and Early Goal Setting Meetings

Meet Your Teacher and Early Goal Setting Meetings (EGSM) typically take place before the school year starts.  Our goal is to meet with every child’s family for an Early Goal Setting Meeting. We’ve listened to parent feedback about our EGSMs and will concentrate our time on getting to know your child during these meetings before the school year starts.

Communication Nights

We know families are busy, so we want to respect your time. 

If teachers notice a change or concern with a child’s performance or behavior, they will initiate individualized communication with a family. As always, we are open to families reaching out at any time to ask questions and/or share concerns. Although not every family will feel the need to attend multiple face to face meetings, our communication plan offers multiple flexible evening opportunities.

  • Support family/teacher relationships focused on student growth.
  • Provide multiple opportunities for teachers to proactively inform parents of their child’s social, behavioral, and academic performance and progress.
