Let's use our community to the best of our abilities :)
Schools can use bi-weekly newsletters, monthly newsletter, or possibly weekly newsletters
Community members who may not be able to get out of their homes may still be able connect with the schools and following and listening to the extra-curricular activities on the radio.
A lot of work, but just calling our students parents and making them aware of their child's behavior and upcoming events in which they can get involved.
With unlimited extra-curricular activities at our school, their programs need to make money so they go out into the community and sell their fundraising product. A great way to connect with community and make them aware of upcoming events at RAHS. It could be given to them on a 1/2 sheet of paper or provide them with the school website address where they can access all the events.
i.e. Relay for Life, Darfur Awareness Run, Diabetes Walk, 623 run etc.
A community carnival put on by students and staff that invites the community to play games, have fun, and interact with each other.
Band & Choir Concerts
Specific Cultural Programs
Bring the school to the community-sponsored events.
Invite people from the community to talk about certain topics
Invite local companies
Different languages used on wall hangings
Appropriate greeting ie: handshake, bow, welcoming phrase, etc
Holidays and celebrations

Make connections with local businesses. For example, for our Physical Education 12 class, we have built a good relationship with County Cycles in Roseville where they come and maintenance all 40 of our bikes 3x a year at No Charge.
