Another successful Back to School Night! Thumbnail Image
We were excited to see new and returning families at our annual Back to School Night! Our general meeting introduced new staff members to the families of Shirakawa School. Principal Sugimura also had an opportunity to review information on technology updates, ways parents can get involved, and Title I funding to the school. Following the general meeting, families were dismissed to their child's classroom to meet with their teacher. Important information about their child's grade level and their child's academics for the year were covered. As always, if parents have questions, please feel free to contact your child's teacher or the front office. We look forward to the continued partnership with families to achieve academic success for our students. You can find more photos in our Albums.
