To help make our school the best learning environment possible, we ask that parents observe the following requests:
Parent Classroom Observation: Based on parents’ feedback and teachers’ recommendations, we will only allow Kindergarten parents to stay in the classrooms during class. For all others, there are several scheduled Parent Observation days where parents are welcome into the classroom to observe. Please refer to the School Calendar for details.
Timeliness: Please bring your children to school on time every week. This shows your commitment to their education and will reinforce their learning. When the scheduled class/activity is over, you must arrange to pick up your student on time. The school will not be held liable for unattended children after classes/activities.
Volunteerism: We need your active participation throughout the year. As you know, this school is entirely run by volunteers. We are particularly in need of specialists for Web Design, and Desk-top Publishing. So, please stop by the office (LA 112) and share your time, talents and expertise!
Communication: If you have not submitted or changed your email address, please stop by the office (LA 112) and let us know your (new) email address. The use of email correspondence will help us promptly communicate all school information, notices, and announcements. In addition, please visit our school web site www.cococs.org for up to date information on school activities.
Instructions for Mac Users to be able to read a PC (Win) CD in Mac machine
A. Check the system requirements for the PC disc that you want to use. This information is found on the packaging for that program. If you no longer have the packaging, go to the software manufacturer's website to get the requirements. It may require a certain processor speed, graphics card or a certain amount of RAM. It will also require a certain operating system. Some discs can be used on both PCs and Macs, while some cannot.
B. Check that your Mac has those system requirements. You can do that by clicking the Apple, then "About This Mac" and "More Info."
C. Install Windows on your Mac if the system requirements will work but a Windows operating system is needed. There are a few ways to do this. New Macs come with Mac OS X 10.5, which includes Boot Camp. Boot Camp allows you to install Windows Vista or Windows XY with Service Pack 2 on your new Mac (see Resources). After installation, Windows will run a separate partition on your hard drive.
D. Install a software package like VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop if you have an older Mac that does not have Boot Camp (see Resources). These applications give you the flexibility to run both Mac OS X and Windows at the same time without rebooting.
E. Install virus protection on the Mac if you choose to install Windows. Norton and Intego both make dual virus protection software that covers the Mac and Windows operating systems at the same time.
