Please join us for our Open House on Thursday, August 24, from 5:00 PM. till 7:00 PM.  We encourage all parents to come by and use this time to meet your child's teachers.  This is merely a meet and greet time.  If you feel you will need a great deal of conversation time with a specific teacher, we encourage you to set up a parent-teacher conference.  It is our desire to meet as many parents as we can on this evening.  We hope to see you at Open House.
