Elementary Parents and students are invited to attend our Open House nights in May! You and your child(ren) will get a chance to see our elementary buildings and meet the teachers. Teachers for the 2018-19 will be at their new building so make sure to visit the school(s) your child(ren) will be attending in 2018-19.

Here’s the schedule for the 2018-2019 elementary buildings:
May 2 - East End (5th Grade) 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.
May 3 - Holmes (K, 1st & 2nd) and Denver (3rd, 4th) 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Kindergarten registration is well underway for next year's incoming students! We can’t wait to meet all of our kindergarten families at one of the orientation events at Holmes Elementary on May 7th for families (last names A-L) and May 15th (last names M-Z) starting at 6:30 pm. You're also invited to come to the Open House on May 3rd to see the building and meet the teachers.

On May 21st our students will have a chance to visit other elementary buildings and see their new digs! Students that will be attending a new building in 2018-19 will be bussed to that building to spend the morning and eat lunch. They’ll be able to meet the teachers and staff, tour the building, and participate in activities to help them feel comfortable in a new building.

Reminder: This info went home with students a couple weeks ago, along with a transportation survey. You can also complete the survey online.
