If you are new to the school, you may be wondering what to expect, and whether you need to book a babysitter.
The evening goes from 6:00 to 7:30pm, and you should definitely bring your kids, so that they can show you all of the hard work they've been doing so far this year. If you have more than one child at school, you will be visiting a few classrooms, and are free to do so on your own schedule. You can also visit the music room and the library as well.
Usually, the teachers have organized some displays of the kids' artwork or writing, and you can have an informal chat with the teacher to ask questions about classroom routines, etc. If you would like a more in-depth conversation about your child's progress, you can book a private meeting with the teacher. (You'll also be meeting in November to discuss the first report card.)
A couple of other things to note:
- The Book Fair (hosted by our fabulous local bookstore, Another Story Book Shop) will also be held on the 28th in the lobby from 3:30 to 7:30.
- Ms. Zampiero, the music teacher, would like to invite parents and kids to a jam/sing-a-long in Room 105. Bring an instrument!
- AND members of School Council will be onsite, selling Garden Ave. hats and t-shirts, and advance tickets to our cannot-miss evening event, The Garden Variety Show!! (Saturday, November 4)
