Welcome Back to School Letter

It is time for the welcome back to school letter from our amazing principal, Dr. Janet Tufts! The first day of school is August 15, 2018, and an exciting year lies ahead! The first day is a minimum day; the school has a 1:00 p.m. dismissal. We have many staff changes this year, and we look forward to the many new opportunities they bring as well as the new opportunities the new school year will bring. To find out more about the amazing things coming our way this year, please read the full letter in English or in Español.

Back-to-School Night

Be sure to join us on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, for our back-to-school night. This event will run from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. and will be broken down into two parts:

  • Ice cream social from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m.
  • Classroom visits from 6:15 to 6:40 p.m. and 6:40 to 7:00 p.m. There will be two classroom sessions so that parents with more than one child attending the school can attend more than one classroom.
