OPEN HOUSE EVENTS
7th/8th Grade Open House-Tuesday, Aug. 28th 6pm
6th Grade Open House-Thursday, Aug. 30th 6pm
Parents will have an opportunity to follow their child’s schedule as they meet teachers. On the night of Open House you will go directly to your student’s homeroom to collect their schedule. Please ask your child the name of their homeroom teacher and the room number and report to your child’s homeroom so we can begin promptly at 6:00pm with a video on Schoology.
There will also be an informational meeting for 8th graders interested in the Washington, D.C. trip from 5:15-5:45pm in the Auditorium before the 7th/8th grade Open House on August 28th.
NEW MORNING DROP OFF PROCEDURES
Supervision is provided from 7:15am. When students arrive in the front loop via parent drop off they will follow the sidewalk to the doors by the band/gym area where they can enter into the school. They will then go to the cafeteria for breakfast or the gym until general release to homeroom.
ITEMS DROPPED OFF IN THE FRONT OFFICE
In order to minimize classroom disruption, items dropped off for students (lunches, sports equipment etc.) will be reunited with them twice a day at the following two times:
At Lunch: Items will be sent to the cafeteria by front office.
At afternoon release: Students names will be called over the loudspeaker to collect items.
We are ready to make this a great year! Our planners reflect an important part of our school culture this year, our theme is “CHOOSE KIND”, and we thank the PTSO for assisting in the design of the planners. All students will receive a planner on the first day of school. We cannot wait to see you!
