It's A Good Day To Be A 1st Grader & A Great Day To Be A Colt!
Welcome New First Grade Families! The big day is almost here! We are so excited to start this journey with you and your child. Hope you can make the meet and greet. If not, we look forward to meeting you Thursday morning. You will have the opportunity to walk with your child to their classroom. We invite you to help them get settled, give hugs and kisses, take a picture and then we will begin our day. Our first grade team will meet you outside the front gate at 2:30pm Thursday and Friday.
Wednesday, August 15, 2018 is our First Grade Meet and Greet. 3:45pm to 4:15pm
*Bring your little one to come meet their teacher. This helps eliminates anxiety for everyone on the first day of school.
