All School Meeting 1/18/17@ 6:00 Blue Tang Room!

We have only three meetings each school year, to learn about the progress of our school, and tomorrow’s meeting is especially important because we will be electing parent members to our volunteer charter board of directors! The meeting will be brief, and we’re prepared with sound system and cool a/c! We do not have child care secured for this event, however, so families who do not have child care options will want to pack a doodle pad or good book to keep students engaged during the meeting.
