Communications Committee

LSC Communications Committee

The goal of the Skinner Communications Committee is to develop an infrastructure that provides timely and informative content to the Skinner community through various methods of communications. Our goal is to have open communications while being environmentally conscious. The committee meetings are open to all parents, school members and community and meet once a month. Last year alone, we established a new parent email database, created a week-at-a-glance newsletter, and created a new and improved website! The Communications Committee welcomes volunteers to help deliver on the goals of the school and will meet at 6 pm on Tuesday, March 15, and Tuesday, May 10. To learn more, please email Linda King @ lindaking927@gmail.com

E-Newsletters
We send an e-newsletter to parents, faculty and community member typically every Thursday. Please send newsletter submissions to skinnerwest@gmail.com. We are able to include calendar events, text, jpg images, and file attachments that are up to 350KB in size. We prefer submissions no later than Monday night, so that we may accommodate creation of the newsletter for Thursday distribution. Late submissions are handled on a case-by-case basis.

Please email us at skinnerwest@gmail.com if you would like to include information in the newsletter.

Website Changes

Room Parent Program

Room Parents Needed for the 2015-2016 School Year

Room parents are volunteers representing a classroom from K- 8th grade and for ancillary classes:  library, art, science and foreign language.   

While room parent's primary responsibilities are determined in consultation with each teacher, however, these are general guidelines

  • Serve as a resource for classroom parents/act as a liaison between the teacher & parents;
  • Reach out to new classroom families & include them on email communications;
  • Solicit volunteers & donations for classroom activities
  • Answer school-related questions for parents
  • Communicate pertinent school/classroom news 

If you're interested in being a room parent or co-parent coordinator, please respond to the designated database form or contact Kavita Rao
