The big day is here! The first day of school for 2019-20 is Monday. It was great to see everyone at Meet the Teacher on Thursday! We hope everyone is excited to start a great new year! This year's theme is We Shine #BrighterTogether.
Are you interested in getting involved this year? We'd love to see everyone at the school during the year. Complete this PTA Interest form or contact PTA President, Tara Batemon at email@example.com. She'd love to talk with you.
Have a wonderful week!
First Day of School is Monday
The carpool line opens at 8:45. Students must be in their seats by the 9:15 bell.
If you are carpooling this week, please allow yourself extra time. As you know the first week of school is a little extra busy.
Bus riders, please be at your stops 10-15 minutes before the time listed in PowerSchool. As you know, bus schedules can vary on the first day of school as schedules are being worked out. You don't want to miss the bus. You can also use the Here Comes the Bus App to track your bus. See
Staggered Entry for Kindergartners; Meet the Teacher is Friday
Remember, if you have an incoming kindergartner, he or she will attend school only one day this week. Over the summer, you should have received a letter notifying you of our child's staggered entry day.
If you are walking your child in, you must sign in at the front office before heading to the kindergarten building.
On Friday afternoon, you can return to the school to learn your teacher assignment and meet your teacher for this exciting year!
