21. Principal’s report - Back to school nights will be held. K-2 is before school starts and 3-5 is after school starts because of the size of the school, the number of students, etc. If students are worried about moving up, they can contact the office. These are designed more for parents to meet the teacher. Students will be provided with everything that they need for school. Parents do not have to buy any specific supplies for students.
