Family Orientation

Orientation will cover vital information, including key foundations of our program for both students and families, guidance and support for the next steps in the enrollment process, and provide students a space to begin to build our community. We require all new families to attend the orientation as it will be interactive and will give families the opportunity to meet a large number of teachers and staff.
