BACK TO SCHOOL
Sneak Peek is August 13 from 4:30-6 p.m. Student class placements will be available by 4:00 on August 13th. To see your teacher's name online at 4:00, plan to log in to your Parent VUE account. If you do not have your password for Parent VUE, please stop by or call the school office and Mrs. Paxton or Mrs. Atkins can provide that to you! Starting at 4:30 p.m., we welcome your family to the school to meet your child's new teacher, drop-off school supplies and sign-up for PTO activities. We are excited to see you all there!
MEET THE TEACHER NIGHT
Meet the Teacher Night is August 22. This is an evening intended for parents only. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the staff and learn about the classroom procedures and curriculum. You will also find out how you can help your child's class. There will be three sessions to accommodate families with multiple children. Your child's classroom teacher will provide more information closer to the date. We look forward to seeing you there!
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
The first day of school is August 15. School hours are from 8:35 a.m. - 3:40 p.m. You are welcome to walk your child to his/her classroom on the first day of school. We will welcome you to the classrooms at 8:25 a.m. and will make a gentle announcement at 8:40 a.m., when it will be time for parents to depart and students to get busy learning. To promote student independency as much as possible, after the first day of school we encourage parents to support their students entering the building and walking to their classrooms on their own. We have a number of greeters, including four staff in the circle drive, three more staff in the front hallway and teachers at their doors warmly welcoming students to school each morning, making sure they start the school day with a smile, hug or high-five. We encourage you to practice a "have great day at school" ritual at home, letting your child know you will be wishing them well all day and have confidence in them and the school staff to take it from there! Anytime you visit the school, even before the bell rings, please check-in inside the office to get a visitor badge, so we can maintain the safety of students.
