6:00-6:40 – K-3 Grades

Please plan to attend Curriculum Night! Teachers will discuss their plans for the school year including academic expectations, positive behavior, special events, communication and other important topics. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to connect with your child’s teacher, learn about our program, and learn how to support your student. You’ll also have the opportunity to sign up for October Parent/Teacher Conferences and ask teachers about their volunteer needs.

For this night, we ask that children do not attend so that teachers can focus on communicating with you. We are unable to provide childcare. Thank you for your understanding ─ Adults only.

REFLECTIONS
If your child loves art in any of these forms: drawing, painting, music, dance, writing, photography, or film… the Reflections art program is for them! The theme for this year’s PTA Reflections Program is: “Let your imagination fly!” Kids: start thinking about how you can bring this theme alive in your artwork. Artwork will be judged by a panel of artists and the school finalists will move on to a district-wide art show. More information will be coming home soon!

FROM THE NURSE
The note sent home on Wednesday 9/9 with the Immunizations
Requirements 2015-16 was intended to inform those families who have a student who is NOT up to date with their immunizations. If you know that immunizations are complete for your child you do not need to provide additional documentation. Thank you, Susan Goldman, RN MP school nurse.
