Open House - May 24
Mark your calendars for May 24th. This year, USD is combining Open House and STEAM Night into an evening of learning.
The classrooms will be open from 6:00 to 6:45 and the focus will be on teachers and families celebrating this year's students. As much as we start thinking about the next school year in May ... teachers will not be able to meet or chat with future students/parents during Open House. Teachers will be using this time to focus on their current students. Thank you for your understanding.
As our classrooms close at 6:45, a variety of STEAM activities will be available around the campus for an hour. You will find many exciting learning opportunities on the primary playground and in the MakerSpace. Volunteers are needed to help make STEAM Night a success. If you are interested in helping, information can be found on Parent Square.
We hope you'll be able to join us for this special event.
