Become a New Family Mentor
Home and School is currently looking for parents to sign up to be on the New Family Welcome committee. This entails being a mentor to a new family for the next school year. Mentor families will attend the new family welcome breakfast (scheduled for Sunday, August 21), and also need to be available to check in with their new family monthly and be available to answer any questions and assist with their transition. Mentors will be paired up with new families with children in the same grades.

If you are interested in being a new family mentor, fill out the short form below.
Summer Learning Packets
Summer reading and activities are an important way to ensure children are ready for the next school year and don't experience the "summer slide" loss of learning. Teachers have prepared information packets that include activities for each grade level to work on over the summer months. These activities are all strongly encouraged to ensure readiness for the next school year. Check the packet instructions for any required components.

Click the link below for the summer learning packet for the grade your child is currently in.
