  • Back to School Night/Noche de Regreso a la Escuela



    Please come join us on TuesdayOctober 3, 2023 from 5pm - 7:00pm for our Title One & Back To School Night


    Our Title 1 Night will focus on our Title 1 program and how funds have been/will be used.  What is Title 1?  Title 1 is a federal grant program that provides additional academic support and learning opportunities for students at schools with high percentages of socioeconomically disadvantaged children.  


    Back to school night is an excellent opportunity for students and parents to connect with administrators, teachers and staff at school on student's success and classroom expectations.  



    We are looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 from 5p -7pm for back to school night. This event will be in person, and we will have great raffle prizes for those who attend.

    Noche de Regreso a la Escuela


    Únase a nosotros el martes 3 de octubre de 2023 de 5 p. m. a 7:00 p. m. para nuestra Noche de Título Uno y Regreso a Clases.



    Nuestra Noche de Título 1 se centrará en nuestro programa de Título 1 y en cómo se han utilizado/se utilizarán los fondos. ¿Qué es el Título 1? El Título 1 es un programa de subvenciones federales que brinda apoyo académico adicional y oportunidades de aprendizaje para estudiantes en escuelas con altos porcentajes de niños en desventaja socioeconómica.



    La noche de regreso a clases es una excelente oportunidad para que los estudiantes y los padres se conecten con los administradores, maestros y el personal de la escuela sobre el éxito de los estudiantes y las expectativas en el aula.



    Esperamos verlo el martes 3 de octubre de 2023 de 5 p. m. a 7 p. m. para la noche de regreso a clases. Este evento será presencial y tendremos grandes rifas para quienes asistan.
