Join us at a Summer Play Date to Welcome New Open School Families!

Friends of the Open School, along with the Open School Welcome & Hospitality Committee, have planned three summer play dates to welcome our new, incoming Open School families with children starting in Green, Red and/or Silver Clusters in the fall.

Please join us at any (or all) of the play dates listed below to help extend a warm welcome into our wonderful school community. New students and their parents will benefit greatly from not only meeting other new families, but from having a chance to meet some of the current families who will be in their clusters. Feel free to bring blankets, snacks, balls and/or other outdoor toys. Friends of the Open School Representatives and members of the Open School Welcome & Hospitality Committee will also be in attendance at each play date to answer questions.

(This e-mail went out to last year's Kindergartners and First Graders on our database. Most new incoming students are in K and Gr. 1.  Other Open families are welcome to attend.)

Please contact Amyraichlenathotmail.com (Amy Raichlen) or shachar.laviatme.com (Shachar Lavi-Pangindian) with any questions.
