    Family Night, PA Mtg, Grade 6 Dance
    All take place the evening of Tuesday, September 26. 

    We will be hosting “Family Night” on Tuesday, September 26. At this time, you will have the opportunity to follow your child’s schedule, in modified form, from 5:00PM - 6:15 PM.  Teachers will give you a brief overview of their expectations and curriculum.   Cluster Coordinators will be posting a copy of the schedule for you to follow shortly.  In addition, your child will be bringing home a copy of the schedule.  Please bring it with you. In the event that you did not receive the schedule, our Parent Coordinator, Ms. LeBrun will have the information available for you in the Welcome Center and the main lobby.

    Our Parents’ Association will also be holding its first meeting of the 2017-2018 academic year.  Please join them in the auditorium when you finish visiting the teachers.

    In addition, our sixth graders will be enjoying their first middle school dance in the student cafeteria. It promises to be a wonderful evening for all.

    Parent Engagement Time Slots
    You'll notice that on most Mondays, clusters have from just after 2:30 til exactly 3:24pm to meet with parents, basically what we formerly referred to as Cluster meetings. You must arrange those meetings in advance with your child's cluster coordinator to fit everyone is the designated time slots. This new system, where appropriate, does allow for the meetings to expand to the Talent, World Language, Phys Ed teachers where appropriate SOMETIMES (there can still be conflicts between clusters for those teachers).
     
    Open Houses for Admission September 2018
    The October 5 date (5-7:30pm) is primarily geared to Out of District 21 parents and applicants as well as those from private and parochial schools, but all are welcome.

    The October 10 date (5-7:30pm) is primarily geared to toward District 21 parents and applicants, but all are welcome.

    THERE IS NO PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED but we do anticipate sizable crowds so arrive early if you need to park a car in the neighborhood. There will be little to no available parking on site so you may have to walk a few blocks.

    These sessions are self guided in nature. If you were unable to attend either Open House, we will make the main handout available for download starting on or about October 5.
