Back to School Night

We invite you to join us for this special occasion on Wednesday, September 20th. It's a wonderful opportunity to connect, learn, and celebrate your child's educational journey with us.

Please note.... this is an adult only event. Childcare will be provided in our auditorium for families in need (movie).

Back to School Night is more than just a school event; it's a chance for us to foster a strong partnership between parents, teachers, and students. Your active involvement and support are crucial to your child's academic success, and this evening is dedicated to helping you understand our school's curriculum, goals, and the many resources available to support your child's learning.

Here's what you can look forward to during Back to School Night:

  • Classroom Tour: Take a tour of your child's classroom and explore the learning environment firsthand. Discover the tools, materials, and interactive spaces designed to enhance their educational experience.
  • Curriculum Overview: Gain insight into our curriculum, teaching methods, and educational goals for the year. You'll learn about the subjects your child will study and the skills they'll develop.
  • Parent-Teacher Interaction: Connect with fellow parents, share experiences, and build a supportive community. It's a great opportunity to network with other families who share similar educational journeys.
  • Q&A Session: We encourage you to bring any questions you might have. Our teachers and staff will be available to address your queries and provide guidance.

Your participation in Back to School Night will strengthen the partnership between home and school, which is essential for your child's success. Together, we can create a positive and nurturing environment for them to thrive academically and socially and make this school year a remarkable one.
