Some of the ways school management can carry parents along and therefore make them happy have been considered at length. This ranges from organizing a standard PTA forum, letting parents know on time about changes in PTA meetings schedule, filling parents in with the kids’ academic performance, intimating parents of child’s behavior and so many more.
Communication with parents though shouldn’t be made a business as usual routine. There should be times when the parents should be given a good feeling through a well timed goodwill message. These goodwill messages might come during many public holidays’ events and/or other religious celebrations, such as the Christmas celebration or the Easter celebration just at the corner.
Many successful schools even go the extent of getting landmark events dates in the lives of the families of the students. This might range from the birth dates of the pupils to the wedding anniversary date of the parent. Without doubt, many parents will appreciate a well composed goodwill message customized with the name of their child’s school on such an important date.
Sending goodwill messages bodes well for the long term strong relationship or bond between your school and the parents. They see you are not just after the money but have the general interest and well being of their child and themselves in heart. You keep them and your school grows.
