Meet the Teacher Night & Welcome Back BBQ – Tomorrow!

Come meet your new classroom teacher and share a meal with us! Trafalgar’s “Meet the Teacher Night” is tomorrow (Thursday, September 22nd). Teachers will be in their classrooms from 5:00 PM – 5:45 PM. There will also be a “Welcome Back BBQ” held after the classroom meetings. After you have met your teacher you are invited to join us for a meal beginning at 5:30 PM. Hot dogs, pizza, salad and more will be available at the back of the school under the covered area. Grade level tables will be set up and teachers will join the tables after their meetings. This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with other parents and your children’s teachers.

Please remember, the Grade 4s will be selling reusable snack bags at the BBQ near the gymnasium entrance of the school’s main hallway in support of Camp Jubilee.

And, if you were thinking of enrolling your children in one of those noon hour programs, more information will be posted at the BBQ in the main foyer and a number of the instructors will be on-hand for you to meet. 

We hope to see you there!
