Open House: Our annual Open House is coming up next week. It is Wednesday, September 26, 2018. There are two sessions: Kindergarten and Grade 1 parents are from 6:00-7:00; Grades 2 and 3 parents are from 7:15-8:15.

Other Bits of Information:
Lunch and Learn: Lunch and Learn is an opportunity for our students to hear from other adults about their careers, hobbies, or passions. We need volunteers who are willing to come in and share this during lunch with our students. Our students volunteer to attend these presentations in order to learn about the various things our community members do and love. In the past, we have had different types of doctors, police officers, fire fighters, astronauts, journalists (print and television), toy designers, SCUBA divers, photographers, and many other presenters. If you are interested in participating in this, you may sign up here. Questions can be directed to Mrs. Sanchez at email@example.com.
Sowams Speedway: Our Speedway needs volunteers. Speedway is our mileage club that students may participate in three days a week during recess. We are looking for volunteers who are able to be here for one, two, or three days a week from 12:00-12:45. You must have a current background check on file with the school department in order to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering or have other questions, you can contact Bronwyn Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
