Formal and Informal Summer Meetups
Summer Playgruond Meetups will not be hosted at this time due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Informal playground meetups are days that students can come up to the playground and have fun playing with new classmates. They are a great way for returning families to reconnect and for new families to make new connections. Kids can play on the playground equipment or start a game of kickball or soccer with others. Feel free to bring a ball, some chalk to color with or whatever it is that your child loves to do. Stay for a bit or for the entire time as your schedule allows.
Back to School Meetups will not be hosted at this time due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
These meetups are organized by our PFO. This is a hosted event where families can connect with students and families in the same grade level as their child. This is a great way for our students to make connections before they start the new school year!
