Curriculum Night for Grades 1-5
Please join us on August 27, 2014 to meet the staff, learn about grade level expectations and curriculum and give
students a chance to try out the new playground equipment!
Parents will meet in the gym (5:30 for grades 1-2 and 6:45 for grades 3-5) to start the night off with Mrs. Thelen, grade level teachers and special area teachers. After the short welcome, parents will be invited to join teachers in their classrooms for a curriculum presentation. Students will enjoy popsicles (Thank You, PTO!) on the playground. After the grade level presentations,
students are welcome to meet with their new teacher and visit their classrooms.
