August 17th by 5:00 pm Look for an email from your child’s teacher.

Teachers will email you information about class procedures, academics, and events for the school year. This will allow you to review information prior to Back To School Night so you can come prepared with questions.

August 18 5:00PM-7:00PM Back To School Open House.

Parents and students will have the opportunity to meet teachers and tour the school.
