It's our job to help inform our Queen Anne Elementary Community about important dates & deadlines, school needs, community events, and community celebrations. We use a wide variety of communication tools in our communication routine to help accomplish the goal of keeping everyone well-informed.
COMMUNICATION CHANNELS our communication channels are managed by dedicated teachers & staff and hardworking QAE PTSA volunteers
SCHOOL & PTSA School Websiteqae.us Our school website is a great resource to find information like the school calendar, headlines & recent news, classroom links, Mr. Elliott's blog, teacher & specialist blogs, the enrichment schedule, a site map, and much more. The school website is maintained by QAE PTSA volunteers and a continuous work in progress—if you have any specific suggestions for improvement, please let us know.
School Calendar qae.us/calendar Our school calendar is visible on our home page and at qae.us/calendar.

TEACHERS & STAFF
Classroom Coordinator Emails (classroom) Teachers are busy. The role of the classroom coordinator is to facilitate the teacher by taking on some of the administrative duties like recruiting classroom volunteers, securing field trip chaperones, coordinating Halloween & Valentine's Day parties, finding an auction art project lead, and other classroom-specific needs. Classroom Coordinators are parent volunteers and are a tremendous support to our teachers. Classroom Coordinator related information is sent via email. If you do not receive an email from your classroom coordinator(s), please let us know.
Orange Folders These folders are brought home and returned daily. It's a great resource to find finished schoolwork, homework, field trip permission slips, classroom communications, event and activity flyers, etc.
Teacher and Staff Blogs Many teachers will either update a blog, send out weekly emails or use our SeeSaw tool to send out updates to families. Check with your child's teacher for more details.
