As the parent or guardian of a Nichols student, you are a valued member of the Nichols School Parents’ Association. Your voice is important, and as a leadership team, we are both honored and grateful to be representing you for the 2020-2021 school year.
The Parents’ Association is led by our Parents’ Council, made up of elected representatives including our Executive Leadership Team, two to three Grade Representatives per class year, and a team of At-Large Members. In preparation for the year ahead, the Parents’ Council has been reading The Power of Positive Leadership, by Jon Gordon. You will hear us reference themes from the book throughout the year as we embark on new ways of approaching our children’s educational and social environments and embrace the challenges that lie ahead. Positive Leadership is part of our culture and the theme that will drive us as we focus on the pillars of Leadership, Partnership, Enrichment, and Communication.
Get involved! Whether you are a new or existing parent, our advice for the best experience possible is to get involved in whatever ways are most meaningful to you. Volunteering for a planned grade rep event, attending a parent coffee, listening in on a Zoom call, participating at Family Service Day, or donating a much-needed item for your class, are all ways to get to know one another, make new friendships and help to support the mission of the school. For more information about volunteering, please contact Stephanie Angelakos, Liaison to the Parents’ Association at email@example.com or reach out to any member of our Executive Leadership Team!
The primary source of written communication for parents is through the Resources section of MySchoolApp. Important health forms and all archived notices are also located in this section. If you have any challenges with your login, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure that your email is current with the school so that you are in receipt of important correspondences throughout the year. Other forms of communication include:
- Parent Newsletter (every Sunday evening from August-June)
- Parents’ Association webpage on the Nichols website
- Emails from your Grade Rep and Leadership Team
- Important, time-sensitive messages from the school via email
- Social media
While we understand there will be uncertainty and change throughout the year, we look forward to approaching these challenging times together. By working together, we will make it a great year!
