PARTICIPATION AND SUPPORT
Support your child in all their educational endeavors by giving praise and showing interest in their school activities (homework and projects).
CNG community members will actively participate in the following activities:
• The school’s community social service initiatives, which include Colegio Fundación Nueva Granada (financially and/or volunteer work), and any other community service initiatives that the school promotes.
• The school’s parenting sessions and values initiatives, including school meetings, conferences, Positive Action and STAND4CNG. We strongly believe that Parent Support both at school and at home with the anti‐bullying, alcohol, smoking, and drug policies is a fundamental part of our community values.
• Participate in the school’s governance entities including the Parent Association, the Parent Council, the Board of Directors, and any other parent committee.
• Parents should support children by respecting the property and values of others. All personal belongings must be clearly marked. Under no circumstance should a parent take from the school premises any belongings, which are not theirs, even if the item in question is not fully marked with any student’s name on it. In the same manner, parents should not allow their children to take items and/or bring home items that are not theirs.
ATTITUDE AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION
A child’s perception is not the same as an adult’s perception due to their developmental maturity. Listen to your child as they tell you their reality, but remember that multiple versions can always exist. Always be positive and approach these situations with a spirit of cooperation and genuine partnership.
Be prepared to actively listen to another person’s point of view. It may be that the perspective from which one parent is approaching the situation is different than that of the other party; however, each may be of equal value.
It is appropriate in times of conflict that correct procedures be followed to allow all parties to be heard and for harmonious solutions to be reached. If the conflict centers on a classroom issue, the first contact should always be made with the classroom teacher. If a resolution is not reached, then it is appropriate to involve the School Principal with the aim of him/her assisting with such a result. Should the matter result from a situation outside of the classroom then it is appropriate to discuss this with the School Principal in the first instance. If parents remain dissatisfied with the results, then the matter can be referred to the Director.
FAMILY COMMITMENTS IN ATHLETIC EVENTS
Abide by the UNCOLI participation, organization, behavior manual, and regulations at all times. Athletes, spectators, supporters, coaches, and officials (and anyone else present at a game) must ensure that they, and everyone support the UNCOLI and school expectations. Please refer to Manual de Participación, Organización y Comportamiento en las Actividades Organizadas por UNCOLI
Promote children’s participation in and commitment to CNG athletic teams.
Commit as a family to the team the child has chosen so he/she can train and play in scheduled games and tournaments.
Respect the decisions made by the coaches at all times. During the games, coaches are the authority. If at any time one does not agree with the coach’s attitude or decision, one should inform a CNG authority, ideally the Director of Athletics and Co-Curricular Activities.
Be a model for CNG and other schools
when you come to participate and support the teams. Promote positive competition and sportsmanship. Help children be on time to practices and games with their equipment and uniforms.
