Principal chats have always been one of our favorite opportunities to meet with interested parents to talk about our schools. At the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, we set up two principal chat times each month. The first Thursday of the month was notionally reserved for 10/12 parents while the 4th Thursday of the month was set aside for 8/9 parents. Over the past 4 months we’ve found that that separation of times wasn’t necessary and that, in fact, most parents just continued to attend on the first Thursday of the month as has been the schedule for several years. The principal chat on the 4th Thursday was adding confusion and not much else. Because of these things, we’re going to return to our usual pattern of having HS principal chats on the first Thursday of the month for the remainder of the year. Our next HS principal chat will be at 8 am on February 6th. Of course there’s no need to wait for a principal’s chat. Please feel more than free to contact either Ms. Childress (firstname.lastname@example.org or [what’s your phone number Kathy?]) or Mr. Pearson (email@example.com or 503-261-4209) at your convenience for any reason.
