Schools are better when they partner with families. When parents share their guidance, energy and expertise with us, we are strengthened and enriched by their contribution. Educational research tells us that families are also better when they partner with schools. Children achieve more, set higher aspirations and feel more positive about school. Parents also report that they feel closer to their children and more understanding of their social, emotional and intellectual needs.
We have a wonderful parent community here at Trafalgar Castle School – a group of dedicated volunteers who make us better in so many ways. Every parent/guardian is a member of the Parents’ Guild and encouraged to become involved in the School. You may want to help with an open house, a school trip, a robotics tournament, the Castle Bazaar, Trafalgar Day or volunteer in The Boutique (the school store), to name just a few opportunities. There are many more! Please contact the Parents’ Guild at firstname.lastname@example.org. Find out more about the learning environment at Trafalgar Castle.
Trafalgar’s Parents’ Guild provides a Parent Handbook at the beginning of the School year for our new families. The document includes useful information for all parents as a refresher for topics such as ways to get involved, school life, co-curriculars and other general information.
We are pleased to launch Castle Connect as our new parent portal. Here you will find access to the co-curricular calendar, Parents’ Guild (PG) Cakes/Cookies and Hugs orders, meeting minutes, and other important resources.
