CJD's Open House will take place on Wednesday, September 27th. The parent Title 1 Meeting will start at 5:00 pm and Open House will begin at 5:30 pm. Please begin arriving at 4:50 p.m. for the Title One meeting through the lunchroom doors and no later than 5:15 p.m. for the Open House meeting. Open House will be more involved with your child's teacher compared to the Meet and Greet. You will get to go inside their rooms, learn about the course expectations and content, and receive information from the teacher such as the course syllabus. Thus, we hope to see you again if you came last month and we hope to see you for the first time if you didn't make the Meet and Greet! #CJDpride #ittakesavillage
