6:00 PM to 8:00 PM


We invite all parents/guardians and students

to join us for a drop-in format open house for the 2018-2019 school year.

There will be two duplicate parent/student sessions where Mrs. Smith will discuss school policies, procedures and answer questions.

The two sessions are as follows: (Please feel free to choose one.)

        6:15 PM to 6:45 PM

        7:00 PM to 7:30 PM

When you are not in a session with Mrs. Smith, please feel free to meander around the building and visit with your child’s teachers.

Due to the open house format of the evening, if you have specific questions regarding your child,

please feel free to schedule a meeting with their teacher or team once school has started.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, August 21, 2018.

Thank you for your support as we work together to help your child have an enjoyable and successful school year!
