Upcoming Family Friday Reminder

Dear Families,

We are excited to have our first Family Friday of the year on October 26th at 9:20am. As most of you know, during these times you are encouraged to visit your child’s classroom and participate in classroom activities. We have had great success with this program over the years, and we are looking forward to having you join us again this year. All of our children benefit from having more adults to interact with, and our whole community benefits from increased family involvement.

The upcoming Family Friday will take place after the PTO meeting.  We hope that you can attend both the PTO meeting and Family Friday.  

  • 8:00 am PTO Meeting
  • 9:20 am Family Friday Hour (tentative end time is 10:20)

Parents’ role in the classroom during Family Fridays depends on the grade level, the teacher’s instructions, and what makes you comfortable.  Because we want all children to benefit from this program, we ask that you spend time with a few children, not just your own child.  And, of course, this is not a time to have individual parent-teacher conferences.  If you are not available, other relatives or caregivers are welcome to attend.

We hope that you will be able to participate in our Family Fridays this year.  Come for part of the time, all of the time, or whatever fits into your schedule.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
