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.

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.
