Poinciana Open House 2015 – 2016

Curriculum Night

Open House, or Curriculum Night is this WEDNESDAY, August 26th from  6:00pm-7:30pm. Come as early as 5:30 to park (the back lot and side lot will be available) and go to the Dining Room area to see PTA, sign up for Free/Reduced Lunch, or sign up to volunteer in the classroom.  This is a “parent/teacher’ night only. If you do not have child care we will watch the children in the Dining Room with a short movie for the time you are here .

Parents will report to their child’s teacher right at 6:00 and listen to a welcome from the principal, then be able to hear details regarding the core curriculum from their teacher. Last, you will be able to tour the STEM labs and fine arts classrooms to hear all about our special electives.

Thank you for attending this very important event.  See you Wednesday – doors open at 5:30.  You will enter through the back door or the side door of the school.

Lisa Lee,

We have a “pre-assessment” day where we meet with the students individually and conduct a short ABC/123 test with them in order to properly place students in classrooms that are balanced and most successful for them.

Please come on Saturday, August 8th, 2015, during your designated time, so that that lines are not that long.

A-G – 9:00am
H-N – 10:00am

We also will have PTA here that day, as well as AFTERCARE, if you are interested in buying school shirts, or sign up for volunteering, or signing up for aftercare.
