I know many of you are busy finishing up vacations and beginning to focus on back to school shopping and all of the other important details as school begins. The school office is getting busier by the day now. I look forward to greeting our many returning families as well as meeting our new families.
Class placement letters will be mailed on Friday, August 19. Along with classroom assignments, you will receive helpful information on events during the first few weeks of school, as well as the suggested supply list from the grade level teams. To aid you in planning, here are a few important items for your calendar:
Monday, August 22, 7 PM: New Parent Night in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) The PTA and I will be there to share helpful information and answer your questions.
Tuesday, August 23, 11 AM-12 PM: Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten Classroom Visits. Parents and students are invited to visit their classrooms and meet their teachers for this very helpful hour. We find it quells first day jitters when the students have had the opportunity to see their room and meet their teacher ahead of time.
Wednesday, August 24, 8:15 AM Our first day of school! Yard supervision will be available at 7:45. The first bell will ring at 8:10. I encourage you to come early to avoid the heavy traffic as school begins. This will be our first day with our school bus. Remember that parking is available along Belvedere and on neighboring streets. Please be very careful to avoid blocking our neighbors driveways.
I look forward to a wonderful new school year!
