Messages for Your Children
To cut down on classroom interruptions, please assign one of your children to be the “message carrier” for your family. Due to the hectic pace at the end of our school days, please limit phone calls after 2:30pm to emergencies so we are able to deliver messages on time.
Email can be a useful communication tool. It is not, however, the best way to communicate time-sensitive information. During the day, our teachers are teaching and don’t always have time to read messages and pass them along to your children. If you have an email message that must reach your children, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and CC your child’s teacher.
Messages to Teachers
When communicating with a teacher or staff member, please allow 24hrs for them to respond to messages. Also, note that we encourage our faculty and staff to honor the Lord’s Day by not working and discourage them from responding to messages on Sunday.
Report cards are sent home with students at the end of each trimester. Report cards for K-5th grade are sent home in an envelope with an area for parent signature. The envelope is to be signed and returned to school as soon as possible. Please feel free to call your child’s teacher should you have any questions regarding the evaluation. Middle School report cards are sent home via the student also, but no return envelope is required. Student records are held privately at the school, but are open to parent review. Student records are sent to the chosen high schools after graduation.
Parent/Teacher Conferences are an important part of your child’s education. School-wide conferences are scheduled in the fall and in the spring. You need not wait for a scheduled conference time to have a conference with a teacher. Communication between home and school are vitally important; please feel free to call or visit the school. We are here to work with you.
Special Services – Speech Therapy
Forest Hills Public Schools provide speech therapy to our students upon referral. We have on staff two special education teachers and two assistants. The resources of these staff are available to meet special needs of Ada Christian School students.
