Student Orientation Wednesday, August 11, 2021
10:30 – 11:30 AM
Ingleside Tutorial, 263 Parrish Lane, Flintstone, GA )
The entire family is welcome to this event. Students will see their classroom, our beautiful Morning Time location, meet their tutor, and tour the property.
Please bring a picnic lunch along with chairs/blankets for a creek-side lunch together. If you suspect your children will want to play in the creek, please plan accordingly. This will be a great time for our community to rejoin after so much time apart.
Building community has always been important to Ingleside leadership, staff, and families. Part of that is done through lingering before or after Ingleside hours, field trips, Enrichment Afternoon activities, and various programs throughout the year. If you have an idea for a field trip or activity, plan it or gather a couple other like-minded parents and make it a joint effort! We welcome the collaboration and initiative. And we always welcome parents suggesting a parents night out where we simply get together over a meal and get to know each other.
Another way we build community is through training pertaining to Ingleside’s unique educational methodology. For the 21/22 academic year, we will try something new. At key points during the year, individual tutors will ask parents to come early to pick up their students and stay for a 30 minute session. This will be a time for the tutor to explain what new thing is being asked of the students during class, what it is and why it’s important, and how the parents can provide additional support for their child at home. An example of this is what happens in third grade when students begin to do written narrations in addition to oral narrations. These are key building blocks in the child’s educational development. A parent’s involvement and understanding will enhance the child’s progression. Please make every attempt to attend these short, but important gatherings.
Whether the community event is casual or more formal, Ingleside families will receive details for these events via email as they are planned. Ingleside also uses the Remind App for quick communications, so please make sure you have downloaded the app.
