Back To School Night for Parents!
On September 30 we're inviting parents Back to School! We're opening each of your child's classrooms to give you a better understanding of the content and expectations for each of your child's classes. On Monday, Sept. 29th, your child will bring home a copy of his/her schedule for your use at tomorrow's Back to School evening. Your students' schedule is also available on School Loop. This evening is planned for parents only!
You'll visit your child's classrooms by following his/her regular daily schedule, and the teachers will share their specific expectations and classroom standards. Since the teachers will be focusing on presenting an overview of their curriculum, there won't be time for discussions about individual students. Sign-up sheets will be available if you wish to schedule an individual conference with a given teacher.
Our principal, assistant principal, counselor, and program facilitator will also be on hand to answer questions.
