School-Parent Communication in Middle School

When children make the leap from elementary to middle school, one of the most obvious changes for parents is the decrease in volume of  take-home (printed) communication from teachers. Gone are the days of red book bags, weekly homework assignments and monthly teacher newsletters. To keep abreast of what’s going on at school, it is critical that parents be proactive in signing up for online notifications from the schools. Both Sunnyvale Middle School and Colombia Middle School offer parents an easy way to stay informed about goings on during and after school.
