Open House - Back to School Night! (Curriculum Night)

This year at Anderson, Curriculum Night will have a different format. Instead of curriculum presentations with parents and classroom teachers, we will be hosting an open house. During open house parents and their children are invited to come to the school to visit their classrooms, explore the building, meet teachers, and give the children a chance to show off all of the learning they have been engaged in.

When you arrive, every child will be given a "Passport". Travel to all the locations around the school and fill your passport with stamps. Locations will include places like your child's classroom, the LRC (Library), Gym, Music, Art, Cafeteria... Notes the staggered start times based on your Last Name. This will help minimize major traffic jams in the parking lot and hallways.
