Curriculum Night, THIS Thursday from 6:30-8 in the lunchroom & your classroom, is a chance to learn about the lesson plans going forward including topics and focus areas, briefly discuss any issues you might have, and to set up your parent-teacher conference time in November. Curriculum Night is hosted by the principal and teachers.
Kids are NOT allowed. There is no childcare provided (unlike PTA meetings, where there is free childcare - though not sure about toddler-aged kids). Get a babysitter for Curriculum Night. It is probably a good idea to have both parents/primary caregivers attend this one so you get the full picture, and can split up to chat with multiple teachers if necessary.
Come and find out what's going on! What is writers' workshop and reading workshop? What is the computers class all about? Will we have a bike unit in Health & Fitness this year? When is the first computerized/standardized MAP testing session? Etc.
Also, you'll be able to buy scrip, Chinook books, and t-shirts, and sign up for the PTA & school directory. :)
