Partnerships between school and home are the foundation for student success. We invite you to start this partnership with your teachers on the following dates. Each evening will have a different focus so plan to attend all 3.

T 3- 10/8, 1/21, 4/21

Each evening will run from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
Please note corrections to last week's message: Teachers will run 2 sessions each. Parents only need to attend 1 of the sessions per child/teacher. The rest of the time families can eat, parents can network, and check out the venders on site that support our school.
Student Check In: 5:30-5:40pm
Session #1: 5:40-6:25
Session #3: 6:40-7:25
Dang Good Dogs Food Truck will be on campus so you can purchase dinner before or after your sessions.

Pastries With Parents
Student Equity Committee- 4th & 5th Grade Students
We are working this year to implement a Student Led Equity Team. The overall mission of this team will be to give students the opportunity to have a voice in the development and planning of school-wide activities, events, and resources which will be inclusive for ALL students. With this being our first year, we will keep this committee small, with 10 student members, in grades 4th and 5th. Please read the flyer here for more information.
