Meet the Teacher Night at Cashton Elementary School

Meet the Teacher Night at Cashton Elementary School

     Cashton Elementary will be conducting a “Meet the Teacher” night on Thursday, August 30th from 4:30 PM until 6:30 PM for students (5K-Grade 5) and their families.  The purpose of the event is to help families to become more familiar with the school, the curriculum, and teachers with the hopes of supporting a strong connection between home and school.  This partnership is essential to the learning process and helps teachers better meet the unique learning needs of each child. 

     With exception of the time scheduled for grade-level meetings, Cashton Elementary teachers will be available in their classrooms for open house visits with parents and their children.  Parents have a wealth of knowledge about their children’s social, emotional, and academic needs.  In many cases, they will be able to help their child’s teacher better meet their needs by helping them understand their individual strengths, challenges, and interests. 

     Grade-level teaching teams will conduct a 15-minute group meeting to provide an overview of the skills and topics to be addressed, explore curriculum handbooks, explain classroom routines, share topics that are unique to the grade level, and answer any general questions families may have.  This meeting is also an opportunity to meet the additional teachers who will be working with each child.  Sessions are staggered in the interests of families with more than one child in the elementary school.  It is understood that some families may have a conflict with the assigned time and will not be able to attend. 

Scheduled times are as follows:  5K 4:30-4:45, Grade 1 4:50-5:05, Grade 2 5:10-5:25, Grade 3 5:30-5:45, Grade 4 5:50-6:05, Grade 5 6:10-6:25. 
(Note:  4K families will be scheduled for individual meetings with their child’s teacher and should contact the Elementary office if they have not received the orientation letter by late August.)  Families are welcome to bring their children’s school supplies to this event to lighten their backpacks on the first day of school.
