Back To School Events

Summer lingers on, yet the first day of school is right around the corner.  There are a few events coming up that provide an excellent opportunity to meet new friends, catch up with old friends, meet your kids' teachers and drop off school supplies.  

Have a rising kindergartner?  Mark your calendar for the annual PTO-sponsored Popsicle Play Date, Sunday August 19th from 3:30 to 5:00 on the upper playground at MLS.  This is a fabulous way to meet all the amazing kindergarten teachers and fellow students and parents, all while enjoying the playground and icy cold popsicles.

Open House:  This year's Open House is scheduled for Monday, August 20th from 4:00 until 6:00.  Bring those mountains of school supplies in early and meet your child's teacher.  This is also a great time to purchase assignment books and add money to lunch accounts.

First Day of School:  Wednesday, August 22nd is the first day of school.  Welcome back everyone!

Labor Day:  No School on Monday, September 3rd, in observance of Labor Day.

Back-to-School-Night:  Back-to-School-Night will be held on Thursday, September 6th at 6:00 pm.  Traditionally, this is an evening when you leave the kids at home and come to school ready to hear remarks from the school's administration, teaching staff, the PTO, etc.
