Curriculum Preview

Please plan to attend this extremely important night for parents. It is your opportunity to meet your child's teacher, to hear about curriculum and expectations for each grade level, to meet parents of other students in your child's room and to sign up for volunteer opportunities. Your presence makes an impact.

There will be two 45 minute sessions. Please note the sessions are repeated for parents who have more than one child. Both sessions are the same.

Session 1: 6:00-6:45

Session 2: 6:45-7:30

We would like to remind you that it is very important to send notes or communication forms if your child is doing anything different than their regular end of the day schedule (including being picked up early). The end of the day is usually a very busy time and it is most helpful if your child's teacher is informed at the beginning of the day so they (and your child) can be prepared. We try to limit disruptions to our classes throughout the day as much as we can, so please try to refrain from calling the office with change of plans unless it is an emergency. If you need more communication forms, send a note and we will send some home to you. We appreciate your help and understanding.
