As we notified families in the first newsletter.....we have two parent events for each grade level during the year as well as many whole school events. The first one is a parent informational night (which all grades have now had). During this event, parents only meet with grade level teachers to learn about the curriculum their children will be learning.

This year, we are trying to have a more meaningful alternative to an "Open House" where the students and parents wander from door to door. Each grade level is planning either a student/parent night, showcase or event. Here are the dates from each grade level so that you can mark your calendars (more details to come from the specific grade level teachers).
