Bette Alkazian This Thursday!

Thursday, April 5th from 6:30 – 8:00

Come to our last parent empowerment night of the year.  We brought back Bette Alkazian for another evening of great parenting advice.  She will be sharing “coping skills to ensure our kids become great adults”.  This is a free event with free child care provided.  Plan to come and hear a fantastic lesson and have a good Q & A at the end.  We had a record turnout last year when she came, and we hope you can make it this week.

Women in History Day!

Your students will hopefully have some great stories to tell of amazing women at the dinner table tonight.  We are proud of our 5th grade performers and thankful for the dedicated volunteers that worked so hard with the kids to prepare for today.

Thank you to the AAUW, the American Association of University Women, who advances equity for women and girls though advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

Women In History 2018 (4)

Women in History Day!

Today our students are learning about some accomplished women!  They are hearing presentations by our MATES 5th graders about 3 amazing, strong women, who made/make a difference.  Ask you student what they’ve learned and maybe you’ll learn about someone new today!
