The yearly goal continues!

Each year I strive to meet 95% of all my families. The partnership that we develop between school and home is so important. Getting to know each other and build this connection is a valuable step! Whether you are completely new to Manning or I haven't seen you in a year, all meetings are welcomed!

What does a meeting look like?

Each family chooses what works best for them. Summer can be a great time to schedule a longer visit so I am reaching out early. Sometimes I meet all the family members and other times it's just one parent. It is whatever works best for you. Below is a list of visit opportunities that may work for you:


  • Home visits - yes I can travel to you!
  • Meeting at a local park
  • Traditional meeting in my office
  • Coffee chat in the morning
  • Zoom meetings work too!


If you have another idea, I am open and willing to try something different.

How do I set up a meeting?

IT'S SIMPLE!!!


Just reply to this newsletter or send me an email when you can!


Email is lpietrzak@cusd201.org

What will we talk about?

The most important part of the conversation we have is getting to know one another. I am an open book so feel free to ask me anything!


My two questions for families are:

  1. What is important that I know about your child/children?
  2. How can I help you and your child/children to feel supported?


If there are additional questions and topics you would like to discuss, this is a great time to talk about them.
