FOR THE FIRST 2 WEEKS OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, all 1st-2nd grade students attend school from 8:25am-1:52pm. After reading assessments have been completed, teachers will send home Early/Late Bird notifications. The Early/Late Bird schedule begins on Monday, August 28th. Early Birds attend school from 8:25am-1:52pm. Late Birds attend school from 9:10am-2:37pm.
Back to School Night will take place on Wednesday, August 16th. Parents of 3rd-5th grade students attend from 6-7 pm. Parents of 1st-2nd grade students attend from 7-8 pm. For both sessions, parents will FIRST report to the Multipurpose Room for a brief meeting with the principal and PTA president. After the meeting, parents will go to their student's classroom. This is a great opportunity to meet your child's teacher and to learn about classroom, grade level, and school expectations.
