Back To School Night Information

September 27, 2017

Dear Families of UAS’s Elementary Students,

On Monday, October 2nd, the elementary school will host a Back to School Night event for all families of our ES students.  Based upon feedback from teachers and families, the format has been altered to best fit your family’s ability to attend this annual event.

As you are aware, the elementary school held a Back to School Informational Night in August hosted by the ES Administrative Team.  At that meeting the administrative staff was introduced, the goals for the year were reviewed, various ES procedures were reviewed with families and a question/answer period was held as well.  The informational power point document was shared with all ES families though an earlier ES Principal’s blog.

Therefore, the intended purposes of this coming Monday are for families to meet their child’s classroom teachers, receive an overview of the classroom goals for this school year and to provide an opportunity for teacher-family interactions to enhance the school-family relationship.  This night would not be time for an individual teacher-parent conversation about a student, rather an overview of the class program and the opportunity to get to know each other.

Please see the schedule below:
