Please see the date change below regarding this combined event. After carefully considering (and reconsidering) the demands on staff time during the first week back, which include mandatory school and countywide professional development, administration has determined that extra time to plan effectively for Back to School presentations is warranted. Our goal is to provide our teachers ample time to get their classrooms ready, as well as to allow staff the necessary time to work with their teams as they process what they learned and plan effectively for the first six of weeks of school. Since teachers have obligations most days, you, our families, will benefit the most by supporting our staff with this additional gift of time. Thank you for being so supportive of this change. We sincerely apologize if there is an inconvenience caused by this decision. Please, rest assured, that if this date is in conflict with your schedule, your child's teacher will send home all materials from the presentation.

The combined event will now take place on Monday, August 27th. The times remain the same. Please plan according to the schedule:

• 10:30 am: New Family Orientation for students in grades K-2

• 11:00 am-12:00 pm: K-2 Open House in your child’s classroom

• 12:00 pm: New Family Orientation for students in grades 3-4

• 12:30 pm-1:30 pm: 3-4 Open House in your child’s classroom

• 1:30 pm: New Family Orientation for students in grades 5-6

• 2:00 pm-3:00 pm: 5-6 Open House in your child’s classroom

Our objective is to provide you with insights regarding your child's classroom, his or her teacher, as well as some specific information regarding our instructional program for next year. With an emphasis on Responsive Classroom, you will be provided an opportunity to learn more about how your child's teacher will focus on building relationships with, and between, students. There will be a 15 minute informal meet-and-greet, followed by a brief introduction to "Morning Meeting," which will segue into a 30 minute formal presentation provided by your child's teacher. We are incredibly excited to welcome you back to Flint Hill for the 2018-2019 school year, and we look forward to hosting an even more thoughtful Back to School experience for your entire family!

Students in grades 2-6 will join their parents for the presentation. Students in kindergarten and first grade will participate in various activities in lieu of staying in their classrooms for their teacher's presentation. Counselors, specialists, and other staff on hand will attend to students during this time. They will stop by the classrooms to pick-up the students. You will be made aware of the pick-up location.

**Please note, we will now be posting teacher assignments on the door, on Thursday, August 23rd, after 3 pm. This is the first day the class lists are live in the Student Information System (SIS).**
