Back to School Night 9/13/18

Please join us for Back to School Night on Thursday, September 13 at 5:30pm. We will begin in the hall where we plan to share information on exciting happenings at Fuente Nueva. This is a great time to get important information, so you can engage in your child’s school community. Next, parents will visit both the regular classroom and the English library. There will be information booths on our Disaster and Safety planning, AFN and more. This event is for parents, so we do offer limited child care to our students with advance notice Sign-ups are available in the main office and the Extended Day room.  Younger siblings are welcome to stay with parents as needed.

Please consider joining us for the Graduation ceremony at 10:15 and stay for lunch on the lawn afterwards. Each grade kindly takes turns giving a “gift” to our graduating 5th graders in celebration of their 5th grade graduation.  The ceremony is one of the sweetest events we have all year and is meaningful, regardless of your child’s grade. We know it is in the middle of the work day which is a challenge for most parents. I am confident that if you are able to join us, you will be charmed and perhaps even moved by the love that is felt in our community that day.  Reminder: Early dismissal day of 1:00pm.
