Thank you for joining us for this year's Open House. We had an incredible turnout and we appreciate the strong home-school partnership. Please continue to let us know how we can support your children throughout the year. Please take a minute to fill out a short survey about the format of our Open House so that we can continue to meet your needs.
We started our new math program, Eureka Math2, this week. Shout out to our South School teachers for embarking on this new journey and getting our students excited about Math. To learn more about this new program, see more information below.
Please remember to order your student's lunches each week if they are planning on receiving one. It is also helpful to remind them each morning what meal they ordered. You can order a few weeks at a time!
This Friday is our first Early Release. We will begin dismissal at 12:15.
OPEN HOUSE SURVEY
We encourage you to participate in one of the upcoming Eureka Math2 workshops held on October 4, October 12, and October 17. Elementary students began using this new resource for math instruction this school year, and we invite our families to learn more and ask questions. Advance sign-up is requested, and more details on these workshops can be located here.
Communication with our families is essential to the success and wellness of our students. To assist our families and help them to connect with the appropriate staff and to understand who is best suited to answer questions or resolve concerns, we have updated the “Who We Are & Stay Connected” page on our website. The information on this page will provide a detailed list of contacts for a variety of topics and an overview of platforms the district uses to communicate with our families.
