Back To School Night
Back-To-School Night is Thursday, August 21 @ 6:30pm in the multiuse room (The air conditioner is working and will be on) for all parents. Parents will meet in the multiuse room at 6:30pm for the welcome from the principal and general school rules that apply to all students. When this session ends at 6:45pm, first, second and third grade parents will go to the classrooms. Fourth and fifth grade parents will remain in the cafeteria until 7:15pm. The principal will address upper grade issues. It is very important that you meet your child’s teacher and establish a relationship with him or her. This positive relationship will help influence your child’s attitude and consequently help them succeed in school. (All Kindergarten classes will meet from 6-6:30pm in their classrooms, then will be dismissed to meet in the multi-use room.)
Please note: 11:30 dismissal on Friday, August 22 for all grades.
