Family Involvement Team (FIT)
The Cradlerock F.I.T. meets virtually the second Friday of each month from 8:00 - 8:30. 

The Family Involvement Team is comprised of Cradlerock staff across all grade levels and includes Related Arts and Student Support Services staff as well. 


The GOAL of the team is to:

  • Help create positive home-school connections
  • Increase family involvement
  • Maintain effective communications with families
  • Plan family events and programs

Since school day mornings may be difficult for some families to join, please know there are other opportunities for School and Home conversations, including Quarterly Coffee and Conversations and monthly PTA meetings.


Below is our running Agenda for the school year. Feel free to take a glance to stay in touch with topics we will be discussing. We also welcome input on topics for future meetings. Please email with suggestions.


We welcome your VOICE as part of the TEAM!
