Back to School Night will be the first opportunity for us to meet as a class parent community.  We will share our story with you, and we would like to begin by getting to know each of you and your children a little better. We are proud of our diverse community and it is this diversity that makes us unique and strong.   All of our children are special in their own ways and you are the experts when it comes to knowing their style, strengths, personality, challenges, cuteness and more.  Honoring this, we invite you to share a piece of your child’s story with us through a 2-minute presentation at the beginning of our time together in the classroom. 

You are welcome to choose what you would like to share with us.  Some openers to get you started could be:

  • I’m going to tell you the story of my beautiful child...
  • We will use five phrases to describe our child....
  • You would like to know that our child is…
  • When I watch my child, I see...

Also at Back to School Night, we will have a special place for you to leave your parent “promise” which will support your child’s learning.  You can think about this what your commitment is to your child and bring this with you for the evening of Thursday, September 28.

Here’s our schedule for the evening (Parents of Grades PK - 5):

5:30 p.m. Meet and Greet in the auditorium
6:00 p.m. Presentation in the Auditorium followed by classroom presentations with homeroom teachers. 

Translation will be available to Spanish in the auditorium.  Here are the directions for you to download the application that we will use. Please bring headphones if you will require translation.
