Grades 3-4


You are cordially invited to attend our annual Back to School Night for Grades 3 and 4 which will take place on Tuesday, September 16, 2014.    During our Back to School event, you will have an opportunity to meet with the principal, hear important messages from our Superintendent and visit your child’s classroom.  In an effort to allow you to give your full attention to the evening’s activities, it is requested that children not be present for this special event.


Below you will find the schedule for the evening’s activities:

Grade 3

6:00 pm – 6:30 pm        Back to School Night Presentation @ STAC

6:30 pm – 7:00 pm        Visits with OT, Speech, Nurse, HSL, CST, Special Area, Basic Skills, Resource Room, G&T Teachers

7:00 pm – 7:45 pm        Visits with Classroom Teachers


Grade 4


6:00 pm – 6:30 pm        Visits with OT, Speech, Nurse, HSL, CST, Special Area, Basic Skills, Resource Room, G&T Teachers

6:30 pm – 7:00 pm        Back to School Night Presentation @ STAC
7:00 pm -  7:45 pm        Visits with Classroom Teachers



It is important to follow the schedule and times set forth above so that the teachers will be able to speak with you in the classroom.  Unfortunately, due to time constraints and lack of confidentiality, it will be inappropriate for teachers to discuss individual concerns.  If you have a concern or question, I would encourage you to contact your child’s teacher via email or their direct phone extension to arrange for a conference.

Please note that parking is available at the McKinley Avenue and Intermediate School parking lots. If you park at the Intermediate School you can walk through the building to reach the McKinley Avenue School.  Please park in designated parking areas only. We suggest 3rd grade parents park at Intermediate as you will be beginning the evening in the STAC.


I look forward to seeing you on September 16th!



In anticipation of the construction process at Door #1, please remember to use Door #27 to enter the building.
