Our goal is always to provide each student with an outstanding education, a strong sense of community, an embracement of diversity and inclusion, and equal access to everything needed to succeed. We rely on each student’s parents to share and support this messaging outside of the classroom.
We will support your efforts - and, in return, give you as much general parenting support as possible!
First, our school counselling department offers a number of resources and guidance for parents, including counselling sessions, details on how to navigate high school admissions, and suggested readings.
Second, we offer a variety of parent supports specific to each grade level. We also suggest you connect to your child’s classroom community for support from fellow parents and neighbors, and to lead by example for community-building!
Third, through CPS, we provide technology to make it easier to support your child academically. The CPS Parent Portal allows you to securely view your child’s grades and attendance online. You can register to receive e-mail or text notifications when your child is absent or when his or her grades drop below a point you identify. You will need your child’s CPS ID number and a PIN issued by Ravenswood to create an account. Please contact the front office to learn how to obtain your PIN.
Fourth, we offer regular parenting workshops. These are held monthly on a variety of topics. Please join us at any that are interesting, or feel free to join us at a Principal Coffee Hour for more general questions.
