Each class provides a regular teacher-family communication through Class Messenger. Teachers send out weekly updates and pictures to keep families connected to the classroom and to help provide communication topics with your child about their school day. Class Messenger is powered by Scholastic with a mission to provide better means of connecting families to the classroom. We whole-heartedly agree with this mission and want to work as a team to provide the best learning environment for your child!
Derry Preschool holds two conference days for our 3, 4 and 5 year old classrooms. These conference days allow for the parents to meet one on one with the teacher to discuss the great things each child is doing in the classroom. One conference is held in the fall to discuss how each child is adjusting to the classroom with a focus on social and emotional progress. The second conference is held in the spring. Each child completes a preschool portfolio. During the conference, the teacher will explain the portfolio as well as review the progress that each child has made throughout the school year academically, socially and emotionally.
