Wekiva Elementary School is known for its parent involvement. Not sure how to get involved? Here are some ways parents are involved at our school:
PTA- The Parent Teacher Association is active in supporting our school. Information will be sent home the first week of school.
SCHOOL ADVISORY COUNCIL (SAC)
The SAC is a volunteer group, required by state law, to provide for parent/community input and communication. Members are elected in the fall. The group meets once per month. Meeting days will be published.
Our volunteer programs are conducted through the county-wide “Dividends Program.” If you or any of your family, friends, or neighbors have free time and would like to work with children, please visit the Community Involvement link on the SCPS website: www.scps.k12.fl.us. You will need to register online before you may volunteer at Wekiva or chaperone a field trip. Please note that younger siblings may not accompany Dividends. You do not have to have special training or talent—just the desire to help.
Parent/Teacher conferences are beneficial to your child’s progress. Telephone conversations cannot take the place of a Parent/Teacher conference at school. On each progress report and report card sent home, there is a place for both the teacher and the parent to indicate a request for a conference. If you feel the need for a conference at any time, contact the teacher to request an appointment. Parents are encouraged to meet with their child’s teacher prior to requesting a meeting with administration to discuss their child’s progress. Teacher planning time and classroom teaching time cannot be interrupted for unscheduled conferences.
REPORTING TO PARENTS
Mid-term progress reports will be sent home halfway into each grading period. Report cards will be sent home at the end of the 12-week grading period. All report card jackets are to be signed and returned as indicated. Students who have been in attendance for more than 20 days will receive report card marks.
