Parent Information Afternoon


You are cordially invited to attend curriculum workshops related to the learning in Early Years and Elementary School. I will be leading three different sessions for you to learn more about the different practices and learning engagements that your children participate in during the school day. There will also be opportunities to partake in hands on learning experiences as well as ask questions.

These sessions will be taking place on Thursday, March 28, in the Conference Room.
