** Kindergarten Parent Night: Parents join us to meet the kindergarten teachers and learn more about Patrick Henry on September 1st from 6-7 pm.
** Kindergarten Open House: Parents bring your kindergarteners to meet their teachers, drop off your school supplies, and then join us on the playground for popsicles on September 2nd from 12-1 pm.
** Back to School Picnic: This popular school-wide event is a great chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones on September 9th from 5-7 pm.
** PTA Meeting: Our first meeting of the year is on September 13th from 7-8 pm. You can learn about the PTA and how you can get involved. Pizza will be served at 6:30 pm, and Spanish and Amharic interpretation and free babysitting will be provided!
The success of the PTA relies on parent involvement. We hope you’ll join the PTA (follow the link on this website) and sign-up to help with an event or activity!
I look forward to working with you, and please know I am here if you need me.
