Meet the Teacher BBQ: Thursday, September 20 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.

We hope that all families can join us for a BBQ dinner. This event takes place at the school from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Thursday, September 20th. The gathering is an informal meet and greet and is a great opportunity for parents and staff to see each other. It is also a great way to meet our new parents, our new kindergarten parents and reconnect with all our parents at this event. Parents can meet their child’s teacher in their classroom 5:30 – 6:30.

The computer lab will be open for parents to complete SD 83 Permission Forms.  This information was sent out in our last newsletter so if you have already done this thank you.  We will have instructions in the lab on how to complete these forms.  It is vital to have these forms completed so we have current information, permissions, and email addresses to send info home. If the forms are not completed, you will be missing information that comes from the school.  Thank you for taking the time to have these forms completed.
