Back to School Night
Back to School Night is one of the first formal opportunities to welcome and introduce families to the school community and environment and to begin to develop connections with and across families. Introduce the big goals and what to expect for their child in first grade and invite families to share their hopes and dreams. Use Back to School Night to communicate what matters - each other, our communities, our thinking, our individual and collective learning - and how families and school staff can partner to support our shared hopes and dreams.
