Ways to Keep Informed and Communicate with M.I.S.

1. Class Dojo: This is the best way to keep informed on a daily basis with how your child is doing during the school day.

2. Skyward: Log into Skyward to see your child’s grades, attendance, discipline, and also contact information for teachers. Make sure all of your information is updated and correct (email/phone) as all messages are sent through those two modalities. a. Sunday phone messages: Sent weekly b. Monthly Newsletter: Emailed monthly c. Flyers: Emailed as needed 3.
