Back to School Night Preview

What an amazing week of classes it’s been! Students have been helping set norms in their classes, hearing about how they’ll be engaging in learning each subject, and learning routines like community care. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to ask your student about their highlights and how they might have overcome some challenges.

We’re looking forward to sharing more about the SGS program at Back to School night on Monday, 9/19.  You’ll hear from the grade-level advisors about an overview of the year, including overall goals for the grade and logistical information like important dates and events. You’ll also briefly meet other teachers who work with your student as they introduce themselves (and quickly run back to the grade level they advise). Back to School Night is for general information sharing; if you have questions/information you’d like to discuss specific to your student, please reach out to their advisor to schedule a conversation at a later time.

Presentations from grade-level advisors will begin at 7:00, but doors will open at 6:30 in case you want to tour the building. Locations are the following:
  • 5th grade - room 114
  • 6th grade - upstairs shared learning area
  • 7th grade - room 108 (big community room)
  • 8th grade - downstairs shared learning area
Parking will be tight. Please carpool if possible, and try to arrive before 6:45 to provide ample time to find parking. Street parking is available on 24th, 25th, and 26th streets off of Massachusetts Ave, as well as on S Grand Street. Parking is also available across the street at the Northwest African American Museum and Jimi Hendrix Park. Please do not park in spots marked "apartment." 
The SGS lot is reserved for those with disabled parking permits.
Back to School Night is adult-focused. Due to space limitations, childcare will not be provided for this event, but children can come with their adults if necessary. Please plan to have your children in the presentation rooms with you.
Below are course outlines which give an overview of what students will learn this year:
