Every community has a culture of expectations for behavior. The Children’s Workshop community’s culture is built upon a belief of caring, respect, and consideration for others in and within our community’s environment—indoors and out, at school and away from school (at home, too).
In order for everyone to be comfortable in our community we would like to share the following guidelines while interacting and communicating within the CW community…if understood and utilized then teachers, parents and others visiting the school can provide role-model behaviors representative of what we foster and introduce in the classrooms. Thus, everyone has a better opportunity to understand and be active within the CW community.
Follow direct lines of communication; that is, speak to the person who can directly address your concerns, provide the information you seek, or offer the support you need. (This can be a challenge, sometimes, especially if you’re trying to speak to a teacher who is busy with their first responsibility—the children. Email or leave a note in the office—or maybe someone in the office can provide the information you need?)
We greatly appreciate your desire to support the extensions of the Grace and Courtesy lessons we give in the classrooms (Dr. Maria Montessori was nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize, after all!).
