We have lots happening in our school before the first day of school on Wednesday, August 22. We have two days set aside for our students to "meet and greet" their new teachers. The schedule is as follows:

Monday, August 20:

  • First and second grade Meet and Greet, from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. (Students with parents or caretaker will meet with the teacher, classmates, and explore the classroom)
  • Popsicles with Principals, from 3:30 - 4 p.m. on the playground. Join Mrs. Deely and Mrs. Buchanan for a cool treat!

Tuesday, August 21: Kindergarten Meet and Greet, from 8:30 - 10 a.m. (Students with parents or caretaker will meet with the teacher, classmates, and explore the classroom) 

The back of a cape worn by a teacher reads "Reading Gives you Superpowers!"

The last of Hickory Point Library's Reading Nights ended last month with smiles and lots of books.

Children and families have enjoyed Wednesday evenings reading, completing crafts, and sharing time. After sharing a book with teachers/staff, a child places a cloud on a reading wall. They can then choose to take home a free book.

The theme of this year's event was "Reading is our Superpower."
