Here is How You Can Help

  • Our Open House is Mon, August 19 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
  • This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to meet his/her teacher. I am delighted to have Transportation, Child Nutrition – Cafe Manager, PTO, Quick Start Tennis, Girl Scouts and Crozet Library to join us at our Open House.
  • Our teachers and staff are excited to meet and greet your family.  You may bring in your child’s supplies at this time or if you had purchased PTO’s First Day of School Supplies, your child’s school supplies will already be here.

Our mission every day is to establish a community of learners and learning, through relationships, relevance and rigor, one student at a time.  With this spirit and belief, we (faculty & staff) look forward to another exciting school year of getting to know our students, working with you to support their development, maximize their potential and reach their dreams.
