Community Perception Survey
Student, Parent and Community Involvement
We encourage parents to beactively involved in their children’s education. An important connection in parent involvement is in supporting homework. At minimum, homework includes reading every night as well as practice on their musical instrument. Although middle school students profess a desire for independence, it is a developmental period that requires parents to stay closely connected to their child and the school. We strive to help parents and families feel welcome and offer multiple opportunities for parents to monitor their child’s learning. This includes Family Access through Skyward where student grades can be reviewed and missing assignments noted.
It is a pleasure to see parents volunteering, stopping by to share lunchtime with their child, or watching a concert or an athletic event. Important, too, is the time that our parents volunteer to be part of our school setting. Parents can be seen at Hudtloff every day as they volunteer in our student store, chaperone field trips and school events, engaging with our staff on Site Council and being active members of the PTSA.
“The Hudtloff Way” is a touchstone at Hudtloff. This is an initiative where our students, staff and community members build a respectful culture and climate where we are our best selves and do our best work. This includes student leadership activities, mentoring, and recognition events that reinforce this effort.
