2021-2022 Curriculum Night

The Back-to-School Curriculum Night for Middle School parents is Tuesday, September 14, from 7-9 p.m. via Zoom. For Lower School parents, Curriculum Night is Tuesday, September 21, from 7-9 p.m. via Zoom. The school strongly encourages parents and guardians to attend as it is a perfect opportunity to connect with your children’s teachers as we begin the new school year. Teachers will give a curricular overview and explain classroom as well as homework expectations. Through experience we’ve learned that a strong partnership between parents and the school allows us to maximize each child’s full potential. Please make use of this time to also ask questions you may have for the teachers.

The Middle School schedule for the event with links to each session’s Zoom ID is available online. Please note the unique schedule for each grade level.

Thank you, in advance, for sharing this time with us for the benefit of our kids! As always, together we’re better!
