Calling All Middle School Families:
We are still looking for several families to assist in welcoming our new families to Visitation School. The New Family Welcome Program is set up to assist our new families in getting to know Vis a little better. Current and newly enrolled families are paired (same division as your child, or a grade close to your student), and are encouraged to:
- Make a welcome phone call
- Send a welcome email
- Make plans to connect as families
- Send an invitation to meet them at a Vis welcome event in August
- As the school year begins, encouraging your child to invite the new student to eat lunch together
The most important thing is that our new families feel like they have someone available to answer their questions as they join a new community. You are encouraged to connect at least once this spring and once over the summer. The commitment can certainly continue into the school year but this is not a requirement.
Interested in being a welcome family? Contact Sarah Aamodt.
