Fallsburg Parents Will Learn How to Use School Tool on November 15
As part of the efforts to promote active involvement in the Fallsburg Central School District (FCSD), Family and Community Engagement Liaison Ms. Aleta Lymon conducted the third in a series of Workshops entitled, “Communicating with Teachers” on Saturday morning October 21, 2017 in Benjamin Cosor Elementary School.

Ms. Lymon emphasized the importance of learning what is most helpful to the child in the school system.  School is a living partnership between parents and teachers.  If there is an issue at home affecting a student’s behavior, it is important for a parent to speak with a teacher.  Just as teachers have an obligation to share with parents challenges in the classroom that will support the common goal of strengthening academic performance and achievement.  The instructor provided a Welcoming Packet for Parents with ideas on how to improve parent/teacher relationships.

During a lively discussion, parents examined their own experiences as children and the role of their own parents in school.  Twenty or thirty years ago parent involvement was minimal.  Ms. Lymon stressed the need to change these dynamics with workshops.  FCSD has technological aids to engage parents, such as School Tool.  Those in the room were not familiar with it.  As a result, Ms. Lymon is setting a workshop on what this system is, how to use it and how it benefits parents, students and teachers.

On November 15 at 6:00 PM at the Fallsburg Jr/Sr High School Auditorium parents and guardians will receive a clear, hands-on demonstration of School Tool management system that provides students and parents access to grades, assignments, attendance and more.  All attendees must have an e-mail address.  Translation in Spanish will be available to answer all questions.

For more information, or to register, please call Ms. Lymon at 845-434-6800, ext. 1223 or email at alymon@fallsburgcsd.net.
