Here in N. Carolina on Sunday evening during the school year everyone gets a phone call with a pre-recorded message from the school Principal or Vice-Principal. It starts like this, "Hello (insert school name here) families, this is the Principal calling and I hope you have had a wonderful weekend". And then the message launches into what is coming up on the school week and updates on things to look out for or special instructions for certain grades. It is very informative and the way the school stays in touch with families that cover many different levels of technology.
During the summer, the messages are less frequent but there are still messages with updates for all the school families. Starting on Tuesday, there will be a second voice that shares information with families in Spanish and will go a little something like this, "Muy buenos dias, familias de (insert school name here), espero que tengan felices vacaciones de verano." I am excited to bring vital information to Spanish speaking families all over my neighborhood!
