Welcome to the 2017-18 school-year. I look forward to seeing the happy faces of all of our students as well as greeting all of our new families as we begin a new school-year. September 6th will be the first day of school and students should arrive to school by 8:30 a.m. Please be aware that there will be a 12:55 p.m. dismissal on September 6th, 7th, and 8th.
Kindergarten parents are invited to attend a Parent Orientation at both elementary schools, to be held in their child's classroom on the evening of September 7th, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. This is an important event for our Kindergarten parents to meet the teachers, learn about the Kindergarten program, and how parents can work with the school to help their child have a successful school-year.
I encourage all of our parents to get involved with the Elementary P.T.A. organization. Our intitial P.T.A meeting will take place on September 20th at 3:15 p.m. in the Gavlak School Multi-Purpose Room. Participation in the P.T.A. affords parents the opportunity to come out , meet other parents and to get involved by helping to plan and develop interesting programs for the students in the elementary schools.
"Back to School" parent events are also held in September. Grades 1-3 parents are invited to attend the Back to School Night event on September 26th from 7-9 p.m. at both F.W.Gavlak and the Jefferson School Annex. Grades 4-6 parents are invited to F.W. Gavlak School for their Back to School Night on September 28th from 7-9 p.m.
I am looking forward to seeing all of our parents, as we work together as partners in planning and providing an outstanding educational program for our students.
