New Families Meet & Greet is Back On!

Our New Families Meet & Greet Breakfast has been rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 21st at 9am immediately after Flag Deck in the teachers' lounge. Come say hello to Principal Cheryl Beck and get to know other new families and PTA Board members. We know starting at a new school can be overwhelming with lots of unknowns, so why not come meet some parents who might share similar experiences or can help to answer any questions or concerns you may have? And although we'd love for the little ones to join, this breakfast event is for parents only. We'll have more fun events for the whole family throughout the year. We hope to see all the new parents there!
