Parent Information Night
Our school will host its annual Parent Information Night on Wednesday, August 31st.  This is an opportunity for families to learn about our school curriculum and the exciting activities that your child will be participating in at McIlvaine this school year.  This important gathering also allows our teachers to share academic goals for the all-day kindergarten program, individual classroom information, expectations regarding the FISH philosophy and classroom behavior, and logistics regarding your child’s reading bag. 

We have divided the school into two sessions for the evening’s function.  The time for your child’s classroom is listed below:
