Curriculum/Meet the Teacher Night: We invite parents and guardians to attend our upcoming Parent Information Assembly and Curriculum/Meet the Teacher Night on Thursday, September 27, at 6:30 pm. The Parent Information Assembly will be held in the gym beginning at 6:30 pm. Mr. Carter, Mr. Melanson, and Ms. Olsen will take this opportunity to introduce our staff members (including those new to our team), share our plans for the year, our vision for the school, and introduce some new initiatives and policies. This will be followed by a session in classrooms with your children’s teachers. This evening is for parents and guardians; not students. Our intention is not to discuss individual student progress at this time, but rather allow you the opportunity to get to know your child’s teacher, classroom routines and procedures, expectations, grade level curriculum topics and outcomes. You will hear about outcomes for various subject areas, assessment, mental math, math manipulatives, reading and writing, suggestions for supporting your children at home, teacher expectations, homework, projects, report cards, etc. If you have specific concerns about your child, or the teacher’s program/expectations, you are encouraged to discuss these with the teacher privately at another time. Specialist teachers (resource, French, music, physical education, tech. ed., guidance, band, EAL, etc.) will be available in their classrooms and offices to answer any questions and to discuss their programs. We look forward to seeing you soon.
