As the School Head, your personal time and attention to various school issues are both limited and constantly in demand. So, if you make time to see parents once a month or so—perhaps for a coffee hour or an informal evening potluck with babysitting provided—families will appreciate your effort and will take advantage of the opportunity. These “head talks” can benefit you, too—if you plan ahead correctly.
What is your school doing the week of November 16-20? Hopefully, you’re all preparing to participate in International Education Week (IEW). 2015 marks the fifteenth anniversary for this joint initiative begun in 2000 as a collaboration between the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. Join schools around the world, and have your students and faculty try out these easy ways to celebrate cultural and educational exchange!
