Dear Parents,

A wonderful week with a PTO Coffee, Birthday Lunch, an assembly and so much more going on in classes. I'll be saving photos of these events for next week, as I have two important things to mention today: Open House, and an Elementary Parent Coffee....


1. Open House on Sept. 3: Please come along to the Open House which begins in the Gym at 5:30. It is a real chance to hear your teacher speak about how the class operates, and what to expect in this important year ahead. 

Below is the schedule of the evening: 

- There are two sessions to choose from at each block 

- Choose either your homeroom class session or one of the specials sections

- The specials options are either French or PE/Art/Music

- Art/Music/PE is in the Elementary Music Room - Rm 207 in the Secondary Building

- French is in the Secondary Music Room - Rm 209 in the Secondary Building

- Teachers in their rooms are Ms. Els, Ms. Cushing, Ms. Pelliccia, Ms. White, Ms. Gesland, Ms. Patel & Ms. Thermenos

- A bell will ring to start and end each session

- We request that if you have any additional need to chat with your teacher, that you arrange a later time - we have a tight schedule

- There will be signs around school Ms. Pam's team of Open House Guides there to help anyone who is looking lost! 

Here is a list of all the Elementary faculty members who will be available to chat to during the evening:
