How Are We Doing?

Jill Singleton
Yogi Berra said, “You can observe a lot by watching,” but at All Saints we believe you can hear a lot by listening. Did you know that the school year at All Saints has grown by more than two weeks over the past few years? This change came about as a result of the last survey we conducted in which parents voiced their desire for a longer school year. Another addition to our program that resulted from a previous survey is the addition of vacation camps. These changes are just a couple of examples of our commitment to meeting the needs of our families.

Every three years, the administration conducts a comprehensive survey to take the pulse of our parent body. What do you think we are doing well? What needs improvement? We depend on parent feedback to continuously improve and enhance our programs. This year’s survey has a number of questions related to the frequency and quality of our school’s events and communication efforts.

Last week a Survey Monkey link to this year’s parent satisfaction survey was sent to all parents. So far 20% of our families have responded. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts and ideas with us. Be sure to let us know what you think is special about our school, as well as where you think improvements can be made. A link to the survey is also included in this week’s Mid-Week Memo. All responses are anonymous and are kept in confidence. Your input is greatly appreciated!
