WELCOME TO OUR
It is important that open communication between parents and teachers is maintained throughout the year. The parents are the real experts on the child so your input is extremely valuable. Parent conferences will be scheduled twice each year. The November conference is expected so that we can continue your child's success, but is optional in May and is only needed if you as the parent feel it necessary or the teacher has any real concern.
Parents are encouraged to participate in all class activities and may help in the classroom as often as desired. Parents may choose the days they wish to help. Our preschoolers are always thrilled to bring a parent (or grandparent) to school, so families are encouraged to make every attempt to participate as a classroom helper. If parent is unavailable to help out in the classroom another family member is welcomed to fulfill the parent’s responsibility. Parents are expected to attend parent /teacher conference.

Snow Days and Emergency Call System
Serendipity will generally follow the Reading Community Schools schedule for snow days. In addition, we will text/call every family. If it is necessary to cancel school due to the weather or any other emergency, we will always text the phone number that is given at the parent meeting. It is important to keep this number updated, if it changes it needs to be changed with the director as soon as possible.
