Playground meet-ups - meet new schoolmates
New students and their families are encouraged to come out to these casual playdates (no school access or planned programming) on the Daniel Bagley playground on the following Sundays at 3pm:
* Sunday August 5, 3pm
* Sunday August 12, 3pm
* Sunday August 19, 3pm
* Sunday August 26, 3pm
...and a weeknight right-before-school-starts one on:
* Wednesday August 29, 5:30pm (may be a picnic and some PTA/staff representation - TBD)
Welcome night - meet your teacher/tour the school
Right before school starts in September - usually the night before - new students are invited to meet their teachers, tour the school, find their classroom/locker/desk, and generally orient themselves.
Why so late? A few reasons: the school won't be open for visiting before September due to summer cleaning and maintenance; teacher assignments aren't made until August**; teachers will be setting up their classrooms up until the last minute.
You'll receive a letter about this from the school, and we will post the information on here and on the big reader board on the corner of Stone Ave & 80th.
**There is a lot of movement in the SPS registration system right up until school begins, so an accurate headcount of students per grade isn't known until well into the summer. In order to balance out the classrooms, final teacher assignments will not be made until August, and a letter will be sent home a week or two before school begins with your student's classroom information for 2012/2013.
