Family Events

Before the start of each school year in August, we have an open house/back-to-school afternoon. This is a time for you to come to school with your child, meet the teachers (if you don’t already know them!), and check out the classroom.

On the first Saturday in October, we will be having our first annual Fall Family Picnic  The whole family is invited for a BBQ lunch!  The children have a variety of activities to do including fall games,  face painting, and, of course, a family photo before you leave.  A wonderful time to get acquainted with and reacquainted with all of our families after settling into our school year.

The Saturday before Valentine’s Day, we have a family morning with card-making, necklace-making, and cookie decorating. We also have ‘family portraits’ taken and a Valentine’s treat to take home.

Throughout the school year, each classroom also invites parents to participate in several individual classroom events. There is a guest reader sign-up in one room, a special Mother’s Day presentation in another and all of our older classrooms have a special family sharing day for each child once during the school year.

We realize that the circle of interactions among parents, teachers, children, and their families is what allows each child to feel fully comfortable while here at school! And we love building relationships with all the members of our children’s families!
