Communication is very important. As a school district, we are working hard to communicate with the citizens of our community. Over the past several years, we have put into place several different ways to provide up-to-date, accurate information to our community.
One opportunity for regular communication is through the local newspapers. Thanks to the cooperation of our local papers, we are able to provide timely information on a weekly basis, not just in this column, but in the many school-related articles that appear every week. The district also publishes the Warrior Pride E-Newsletter each month. Individuals can sign up for this E-Newsletter on our districts website. Several times a year, Huber Heights residents receive a short printed newsletter in their monthly water bills.
Both of these newsletters highlight the positive aspects of our school district and the achievements of our staff and students. Remember, information about our schools can always be found on our website: www.huberheightscityschools.org.
We realize however that effective communication is more than just providing information. It is about opportunities to visit our schools and talk face-to-face with school staff. To that end, we offer parent-teacher conferences twice a year, in the fall and in the spring. Individual buildings also schedule events throughout the school year such as “Grandparents Day,” “Muffins with Mom,” “Donuts with Dad,” Open Houses, and parent coffees with the hope of bringing families and community members into our schools.
As Superintendent, I have “Open Door” hours every Thursday from 4-6 p.m. This is time I have set aside in order to meet with parents and other community members that may have a specific issue they would like to discuss. No appointment is necessary, however if waiting is a problem, appointments can be scheduled.
Huber Heights City Schools is a successful school district in part, because of the support of our community. We hope that with our on-going communication efforts, community support for our schools will continue to grow. As always, if you have questions about our schools, please contact me at the Administrative Offices (237-6300) or through e-mail at Susan.Gunnell@huberheightscityschools.org.
