Friday, August 5th - Meet Your Teacher
Families are welcome to visit our classroom on Friday, August 5, and drop off school supplies.   Please sign up for a time to meet me by clicking here for our online scheduler.  The online scheduler will be available between July 18th to August 1st  and the password is digger. Each time slot is reserved for a maximum of six students.  The sign up is first come first serve, so please sign up as soon as possible if you have a preferred time or wish to align siblings’ times.  If you ordered an Edukit, it will be delivered to your child’s classroom.
Monday, August 8th -  First Full Day of School
The first full day of school for students in grades K-5 is Monday, August 8th.  Students will meet their teachers on the front blacktop on the first day of school for an opening flag ceremony.  Each teacher will have a sign with her name on it.  On the second day of school students will enter the building through the front door on their own between 8:20-8:30 and walk directly to their classrooms.  School will be in session from 8:30AM-3:30PM next year.
