Communication

St. Pius Elementary School prides itself in 21st century teaching and learning. Just as technology has become an integral component of classroom instruction, communication with members of the school community has become primarily through electronic means. The school uses an assortment of technological resources by which we communicate with students and their families.  The following are the school-authorized modes of communication utilized.
 

RenWeb
RenWeb is the main provider of intra-school communication between faculty, parents and students. RenWeb is a web-based portal that hosts general school information as well as classroom, team, club and organization-specific information. RenWeb provides families an opportunity to remain informed about daily mission-based subject matter pertinent to their child(ren)'s education. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
• Private, secure student-specific reports, such as homework assignments, daily grades and attendance.
• Class–specific subject matter, such as homework assignments, test dates, resources and photographs.
• Team, club and organization-specific material such as practice and game schedules, committee meetings, general announcements.
• General school information including calendar dates, school-wide announcements, information on special events, important documents including student handbook, policies and procedures, Safe Environment certification information and other important resource documents.
• Each family has its own access information so that the RenWeb experience is a customized one which features a family page/account.  Renweb also has a mobile app, allowing parents to check important school information anytime, anywhere.

Parent Alert
Parent Alert is an automated telephone system that allows the school to communicate with the entire school family in a matter of minutes by delivering a pre-recorded message to parents. This system is invaluable in case of emergency and in other areas when change must be communicated in a timely fashion, i.e. bus breakdowns, changes in school calendar, or delivery of important information from administration.
"This Week at SPES"
"This Week at SPES" is the weekly parent newsletter e-mailed to famlies each Monday.  The bulletin begins with an inspirational message from the principal, provides a detailed listing of the week's activities, recognizes students accomplishments, and gives additional notes and reminders which parents will need to stay informed about school life.
