Who Does My Student Have for a Teacher?

If your student has been bugging you asking who their teacher is, you're in luck! Student's have been assigned their teacher in PowerSchool and now you can log into your account and see who your child has. Please note that there is always a possibility that the teacher they are assigned initially may change.

Open House

TK-3 Building: We are trying a new format for open house at the TK-3 level. Each family will have their own scheduled time for open house. This will allow each family time to talk with the teachers about their child and allow the teacher to get to know each child and their parent(s) or guardian(s). Be sure you get your child registered during the first week of August and that e-mails and phone numbers are accurate. Each teacher will use this information to invite you to sign up for a time for you and your child to attend open house through Sign Up Genius. Open house times will be scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday, August 22.

4-12 Building: Monday, August 21st from 6:00-7:00 pm.

New student orientation for grades 4-12 only will be at 5:45 pm in the library that Monday as well.
