As we approach the beginning of school, I want to let you know about some upcoming events. As I write, teachers are busily preparing in their classrooms. Next week they will attend meetings and prepare lesson plans.
On Friday, August 12 we will have Meet the Teacher. Each teacher will email his or her class asking parents to set up a time slot. During that time the teacher will listen to you tell anything about your child and your family.
On Sunday, August 14 we will have an opening worship and brief orientation. We will use the following schedule:
· 3:45 PM to 4:15 PM visit any classroom for a brief introduction
· 4:15 PM to 4:45 PM visit any other classroom for a brief introduction
· 5 PM to 5:30 PM opening worship in the worship center
· 5:45 PM to 6:15 PM visit another classroom
· 6:15 PM to 6:45 PM one more opportunity to visit a classroom
Of course you can select as many or as few of the above time slots as you wish. When I say classroom I mean any grade or class including PE, music, Spanish, or art. With four time slots you should be able to easily visit any class you wish.
On Friday during Tell the Teacher More and on Sunday evening we will have PE uniforms available for purchase for fifth through eighth graders. The Parent Teacher league will be available to sign you up for volunteer activities.
On Wednesday, August 17 our first day of school begins at 8 AM with chapel at 8:15 AM. This first day is a short one going only until 11:30 AM. There will be after school care available for those who desire to stay.
I look forward to seeing you soon,
