Important Parent Information Resources

  • Communities in Schools  Finch is fortunate to have Raul Ferrer, a Communities in Schools case manager, on our campus. The Communities in Schools Mission is: “Surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.”  Communities In Schools (CIS) is a non-profit organization committed to helping students stay in school, achieve academically and graduate to become productive and contributing members of our communities. CIS is part of the largest stay-in-school network in the nation, and the leading program of its kind.  For more information about CIS programs or to request CIS services contact:  Raul Ferrer , Campus Manager , 469-302-5694 referrer@mckinneyisd.net

Communication Information
Communication is important at Finch.  Since Finch is a bilingual campus, all communication to parents is provided in English and Spanish.  Our methods of communication include:

  • Weekly communication from the teacher by newsletter, e-mail or Parent Link calls let parents know what is going on in the classrooms.
  • The campus newsletter, Falcon Focus, is sent home weekly  and is posted on the Finch website
  • Written flyers and communication are sent home in Wednesday Folders.
  • Reminders and information about important events are communicated as needed through Parent Link calls.
  • Parent conferences and curriculum nights communicate academic expectations.
  • The Finch Website is an important method of communication.  Current activities, resource information, contact information, campus calendars,  teacher wikis and websites, and weekly newsletters from the office are just a few of the resources located on the Finch website.
