The first day of school is coming up! Here are some back-to-school events on Wednesday, August 23rd to prepare your SGES student and the family for the new school year.
MEET YOUR TEACHER WEDNESDAY AUGUST 23 9:45-10:45 AM:
Students and parents of our Preschool 3’s/4’s class is invited to an informal “Meet Your Teacher” classroom play date on Wednesday, August 23rd from 9:45-10:45 am. Anytime during this hour students and their parents will be able to meet the lead teacher Lorea Jones and our new Academic Director for SGES Alicia Davis, meet fellow students, and look around and play in the room they will be attending class in to help ease students into their first day of school. If you would like your PreK student to visit the classroom please let Alicia know at Alicia@stgabrielschoolpdx.com.
WONDER WEDNESDAY STORYTIME/ART PROJECT WEDNESDAY AUGUST 23 10:45-11:45 AM
After the playdate children and their parents are welcome to stay for Wonder Wednesday Storytime and Art Project from 10:45-11:45 am where we hear stories read aloud on a theme, do a connected art project and then play out on the playground together.
You can come to both events, or just one, or not attend. Both events are drop-in and are not required although we’d love to see you there!
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT WEDNESDAY AUGUST 23 6:00-7:30 PM
Later that same evening from 6:00-7:30 pm all SGES families (including siblings) from both classrooms are invited to bring a blanket or chairs and a picnic dinner (not a potluck) for your family and eat together with other families and SGES teachers. We will present our student handbook and have you fill out an interest questionnaire with your SGES student to help guide us in the first days of school. We will have games and activities out on the lawn and children can play on the playground if supervised by parents. If you cannot attend, please let Academic Director Alicia Davis know at Alicia@stgabrielschoolpdx.com and she will make sure you get the information another way.
We look forward to seeing you and your family on Wednesday!
