You can stay as long or as short a time period as you like. There will be no special events it is just an opportunity for you to see your child learning in the classroom.
YOU ARE INVITED
From 9:30 to 10:00 AM there will be a parent presentation in the Learning Commons from our Literacy Expert who is visiting, Joan Turner. We encourage you to attend this wonderful opportunity. Mark your calendar.
