All-School Orientation! Thurs. Aug 15 8:30am

We are very excited to invite all SFPM families to come get to know our teachers and staff—and we'll be having a clean-up session to beautify our school following the orientation.

Parent/Guardian Orientation: Thursday August 15, 8:30 am, Auditorium:

Following right on the heels of our Wednesday evening Kindergarten Orientation, Principal Keener, our Montessori Instructional Coach Kari Johns and our wonderful Pre-K through 5th Grade teachers will be on hand to say "hello" and answer any questions you have.

The teachers will be available to meet families, share information and answer questions from 9:00-9:30 to help you feel informed, supported and ready for the school year.

This is also an opportunity to meet the providers from SFPM's new onsite After School Program, language immersion after care (Spanish/Mandarin) program from 8:30-9:00 am.

Providers will be on hand to share a brief presentation about their immersion programs, and to answer questions from parents and caregivers. Refundable portions of deposits will be available for parents and caregivers who already submitted after-school applications and attend the orientation.

If you haven't yet signed your student up for the onsite After-School program, there will be a registration table to get you signed up in time for the August 16 deadline.

If possible, please find childcare for younger children so that you can give the orientation your full attention. Coffee and Pastries will be provided - see you there!

Gardens and Grounds Work Day - 9:30am-12pm: If your schedule allows, please join us immediately following the Parent Orientation for a clean-up session to beautify our school and make it ready for our first day by picking up trash, weeding, sweeping. Thank you for your help!

Please bring: brooms, gloves, shovels, pruning shears, and "extension grip trash pickers" if you have them. If you do not have any of these supplies, please just bring yourself.

As a reminder, please be mindful that teachers are working that day, so please refrain from meeting with your teacher during that time and allow them get set up for the first day. Thank you!!
