Summer break | Photos| Teachers need HELP this weekend

Summer’s here! I hope the children (and their parents) are enjoying the start of their break. Let the PTO know what interesting things you all are doing this summer (with clear photos)- we’d love to post student activities on our Facebook (Click here) and our website (Click here). Please take a minute to ‘Like’ the FB page and ‘Follow’ the blog, if you’re not already doing so. The Eighth Grade Graduation photos will be posted there in the next week or so.

Meanwhile, teachers are hard at work packing up for the move to the new facility. They’re looking for some parental help this weekend and, as usual, I’m sure our parents will step up and be happy to help 🙂

Parents sit at their children’s desks…

Parents sit at their children’s desks at Back to School Night! A good way to ‘walk a mile in their shoes…’

Nearly 300 parents came out to the school on Friday nightAugust 23,  to go through a typical day’s routine at their child’s school. Attending each class in the same order as their child would, they spent 10- 15 mins each learning about the teacher’s expectations from their students and discussing topics like curriculum, labs, testing, etc.
