IMO Communication Tools & Technology Overview

To help provide a broader understanding of our main communication methods supported by technology at school, we would like to share with you this overview. Please familiarize yourself with these tools. On a monthly basis, we host “Coffee with Administration”, PTO Meetings, and Board of Directors meetings, which are all posted on the calendar and open to the public for sharing your thoughts and questions.  You can also expect to receive weekly updates through the Parent Square app, School Mint emails from administration, and regular communication from both your teachers and room parents.

If you have a general question and are not sure where to start, you can email office@innovationmontessori.com.

For additional contacts to resolve specific questions or concerns, please follow the established protocols for resolution.  

  • Your child’s teacher
  • Assistant Principals: Cathy Tobin & Michelle Caruth
  • Principal: Patrice Cherico
  • Board of Directors President: Brett Casey

You are encouraged to role model demonstrating grace and courtesy in all forms of communication.  Please visit this link to review our official Community Communication Guidelines.

 

IMO Communication Online – Centralized App for consolidated information: 

We will share new information about ParentSquare soon! In the meantime, please download the app and visit: www.parentsquare.com

 

SchoolMint – Email and enrollment system – On occasion, official memos and communication from the Operations team at school will be sent out via email in SchoolMint. These are “must read/don’t miss” types of communication with time-sensitive or critical information to be reviewed quickly and often include action items. Emails sent via SchoolMint will also be published via ParentSquare. SchoolMint also serves as our system for enrolling new and returning students annually.
