Parents/guardians are our partners in helping children learn and grow. We welcome regular communication and participation. Families are connected with the Remini app and are encouraged to contact their child’s teacher directly. Remini also is where they can view photos of their child involved in various school activities. Formal parent-guardian/teacher meetings occur in January and May, and teachers are always available as needed. The school’s Family Association creates opportunities for families to get together at different times throughout the year. Families are encouraged and invited to participate in the synagogue’s events whether or not they are CBI members.
