We start school on Wednesday, September 4, 2013. On the day before that, September 3, you are invited to an Ice Cream Social. There will be time provided for your child to visit his/her classroom and arrange supplies for he year. An Open House will likely be scheduled for later in the month.
We fourth grade teachers will convene a meeting to discuss our field trips either late in September or early in October. At this point, no field trip is scheduled.
This year, there are no partnership conferences scheduled for October. I find these conferences to be valuable, and if you agree, I invite you to ask for one. Our first cconferences are otherwise scheduled for December 5-7, 2013.
There is no school on Monday, September 2 or Tuesday September 3, Monday, November 11, 2013, or the Thanksgiving holiday (November 27-December 1). The Winter Holiday begins on Thursday, December 20, 2013, and we return from this holiday on Wednesday, January 2, 2014.
