RIBBON CUTTING / CLASSROOM VISITS / PARENT INFORMATION FAIR

The morning of Monday, August 28th will be action-packed and full of fun! Below is a schedule:

Early Childhood Playground Ribbon-Cutting - come celebrate the opening of the brand new Early Childhood playground! This natural playspace will be the main playground for our Preschoolers, Kindergarteners, and used often by 1st graders as well! Ribbon-cutting will occur at 8:30am, but it'll be open for play all day. Due to the record August heat, the trees, grasses, and garden items will be planted in September. Everything else will be ready for fun!

Classroom Visits Come meet your teacher and see your classroom before the big day! Come any time between 9-10:30am. Please plan to stay not more than 30 minutes to give everyone a chance at some calm time in the classroom. Adults must stay with their children.

Fall Fun Fair Grown ups and kids alike are invited to join the Parent Network for a back-to-school celebration. Learn about volunteer opportunities, meet after school class providers, and sample lunches. Games, popsicles, and clown antics provided!  Lower Playground. 9:30-11:30am
