Tuesday, August 19th

6:30 – 8:30 p.m.


We are looking forward to welcoming parents at our Open House.  Open House will be on Tuesday, August 19 beginning at 6:30 in the theater with a PTSA meeting and a welcome from the administrative staff.  The PTSA and the McCleskey Foundation will have information available for you.  If you have not yet joined PTSA you will have the opportunity prior to the meeting.  We appreciate your support of the McCleskey Foundation and any donation you are able to make.  At 6:55 you will be dismissed to your child’s homeroom. 


Invitations to Open House will be sent home with your students on Monday and will include the name and location of your student’s homeroom teacher.  Homeroom teachers will have a copy of your child’s schedule and your access to ParentVue (if available from CCSD) for 6th grade parents and new students.   The access code you receive will allow you to create an online account to view your child’s grades.  There is one account per family.  If you have an account established you will not need a new access code or need to reestablish your account. 


Each class period will be ten minutes long and there are six classes to attend.  Please take some time to see the media center, cafeteria and fine arts building.  The evening will conclude no later than 8:30 so that teachers may get home and rest in preparation for the next day of school.


Parking is available in the front parking lot, the parking lot behind the gym and in the bus lanes, and at Nicholson Elementary school.  Parking is at a premium, please carpool whenever possible.

We look forward to meeting all the parents.
