Open House

Thursday, Sep. 27th, 6:30-8pm

41 Mayflower Avenue

Middleborough, MA

Open House is coming and we hope you will be able to make it. Open House is planned for this Thursday September 27th from 6:30 – 8. Open House is a great opportunity to learn about the curriculum, see your child’s classroom and meet the teachers and staff. Please remember that Open House is not a time to discuss individual concerns about your child with the teacher. Should you have specific concerns as it relates to your child we ask that you please reach out via email or phone. We will also have sign up sheets available for Parent Teacher Conferences, which are coming in November. Parent Teacher Conferences is the time to discuss individual concerns and to find out how your child is doing.

This year at Open House we will also have a One Night Only Scholastic Book Fair! The Book Fair will be running all night long and is a great way to pick up some new books.

After School Clubs

Please be aware that all after school clubs and offerings will be released, on our website, on Tuesday September 25th. If you require paper copies please let us know, otherwise all signups will be done online this year. Clubs fill up fast are done so on a first come first serve basis so please get your signups and checks in ASAP.
