Virtual Curriculum Night: We absolutely regret that we did not budget our time more wisely to bring you an early-September curriculum night. As we butt up against conferences and We Are Bally Night, we realized that we couldn't squeeze in an actual in-person curriculum night this year.


HOWEVER, we spent the past week preparing 5-10 minute recordings by each of your child's teachers so you can learn more about what your child does in class daily, homework expectations, how we use Canvas, and so on. I have watched all of our curriculum night videos and think you really will get so much out of this experience and it will allow you to hear directly from all of your kids' teachers virtually in person if you have 2 or more kids at our school rather than divide and conquering between two parents. CLICK HERE to visit our Virtual Curriculum Night page on our website.


Conference Nights. Teachers will be contacting parents to set up meetings with students who they feel may be struggling. If you are not contacted but wish to speak with your child's teachers we invite you to contact the teachers personally to set up a conference. We're always here for you when you want to talk about your child's strengths and struggles. Conference nights are October 3rd and 9th from 4-7pm.
