A Virtual Back to School Night

If there's something we believe in at Salford Hills, it's partnerships that become the cornerstone of our relationships as we work together on behalf of our students. While we're sad that we can't be physically together for the previously scheduled Back to School Night, our teachers look forward to visiting you virtually as they share presentations that describe specific aspects of the school, academic, and social environment. Look for these offerings on September 9 in Schoology.

For example, you can volunteer to help during a specific event, assist in organizing an event, lead a committee, help out in your child's classroom, serve as a field trip chaperone, help our hospitality committee show thanks during the year, and more. There are so many ways to serve Salford Hills. We would love to help you connect with opportunities that would be a good fit for you and your family. Join our volunteer list by filling out this form.
