MEET THE TEACHER: CURRICULUM NIGHT IS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13th

On Thursday October 13, Parents and Guardians are invited to attend the 2022-2023 Meet the Teacher event at Wilshire ES.  This evening is designed with adults as our target audience. 

The format for the evening is as follows:

  1. Session A – 5:30 pm – 5:55 pm
  2. 5:55 – 6:05 pm – travel time
  3. Session B – 6:05 pm – 6:30 pm (this is a repeat of Session A)

The purpose of the evening is have parents meet this year’s teachers, get an overview of the program, and the expectations for a successful school year. 

Any parent/guardian who would like more information specific to their individual child’s progress is asked to reach out to teachers via phone, agenda, or email, as there will not be an opportunity to discuss individual students this evening.  Progress reports will be distributed the week of November 7, and Parent/Guardian-Teacher interviews will take place on Thursday November 17 in the evening, and in the morning of Friday November 18.  More information will be shared as we get closer to these dates.
