Dear Parents of Grade 1-5 students,
Please join us for an informative evening regarding your child’s curriculum on Wed. Sept. 2. For your convenience and to accommodate your schedule, there will be 2 sessions from which to choose. Both sessions will be the same information, so if you have students in two different grade levels, you will be able to attend a session for each child. The first session will be from 6:00-6:45 p.m. and the second session will be from 7:00-7:45 p.m. This will be for grades 1-5 only. There will also be a General PTA meeting at 5:15 p.m. in the auditorium and following that will be our annual Title 1 Informational Meeting. Free Childcare will be provided for PTA members during the General PTA meeting only. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all next Wed. evening.
