I believe that there are three key requirements that are needed for engagement: action, commitment, and love.
Today’s post is going to address the “action” requirement. Simply put, an engaged school community is “doin’ stuff.” It buzzes with energy and teems with activity. Engaged school communities are full of happy volunteers, supportive friends and cheerful givers.
Our Fall Fair, which was held this past weekend, is a great example of positive engagement. We had a large number of volunteers helping out on Saturday with smiles, hard work and generosity. Action of this nature is contagious and helps develop a culture of engagement at STCCS.
But the Fall Fair isn’t the only place where we see a high level of engagement from our community. High attendance at Parent Partnership Evenings (which, if you are a STCCS parent and haven’t attended yet, I would highly encourage you to join us for our next evening), programs and community dinners all indicate a healthy level of engagement in our school family.
If you would like to hear more about our engaged school community, or get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to find a place to get you plugged in.
