Back-to-School Night coming soon

parents and child holding hands walking up steps of Venable School.Please join us for our annual Back to School Night on Sept. 19, at 5:30 p.m. During Back to School Night, your child will show you around his or her classroom, demonstrate routines, and give you a peek into some of the work he or she is already doing at school. Other areas to visit include the library, art room (where you can sign up to view your child’s art on Artsonia), iSTEM lab, Spanish room, and music/PE.

Kindergarten families will have a different structure: drop off students on the back playground for supervision anytime before 5:50, and then head to your child’s classroom at 5:50pm for a more formal teacher presentation (about 20 minutes). Then visit any of the other open locations around the school.

At 6:30 p.m, we will have a brief welcome from Dr. Kershner and ribbon-cutting to celebrate our new playground equipment. This will be immediately followed by our annual Back to School Picnic on the blacktop. PTO will provide chicken and paper products. Families are asked to bring sides and desserts to share within their grade level (these can be dropped off on the blacktop prior to visiting classrooms). See this week’s flyer for more details.
