Please plan to attend Back to School Night and the Emergency Preparedness Fair tonight, Thursday, September 19, from 5-7 pm. You'll visit your children's classes, meet each teacher, and learn what teachers have planned for this academic year.

The Emergency Preparedness Fair takes place alongside Back to School Night. Seventh grade Health/Life Science students create exhibits and offer emergency preparedness giveaways and raffles. It's fun and informative.

Stop by the Book Fair to purchase some new selections for yourself, your children, or your children's teachers. Many teachers have wish list items on a display in the library.

Additionally, watch Ballet Folkórico perform authentic Mexican dances in gorgeous costumes on the quad.
