Back to School Night

DES Back to School Night
Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015
6:30 p.m.

All parents are asked to attend the annual DES Back to School Night event tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. Please do not bring children with you to this event. And please remember that this is an opportunity for teachers to relay general classroom information to parents. It is not a time for individual parent/teacher conferences. The evening will conclude by 8 p.m.

There has been a slight change in the schedule of events for the evening.
It is important that you arrive in your student’s classroom at 6:30. So plan on arriving a bit early to park. (see note below about parking)

6:30 p.m. – Parents head to classrooms

  •  Principal Hofstetter will welcome everyone via the video announcements
  •  PTO President Jennifer Beall will conduct a brief meeting via the video announcements.

First Rotation – 20 minutes for teachers to offer a presentation to parents about how their classroom operates. (estimated time 6:55-7:15)
Second Rotation – 20 minutes for those families with more than one student to visit the second classroom. (estimated time 7:20-7:40)
Third Rotation is being offered as an more informal session for families with more than two children. This is only 15 minutes in length. (estimated time 7:45-8)

• Don’t forget that there will be Gator Gamble Tickets available for purchase in the main hallway throughout the night. They’re going fast, so get yours now!

• There will also be a Gator Green Gift Card – Pop-Up Shop in the main hallway. We have a limited supply of gift cards on hand that you can buy and take home tonight.
Bring your checkbooks for these two great fundraisers for the DES PTO!

Due to the large volume of cars expected, please be patient when parking on school property and considerate when parking in the surrounding neighborhoods. There is parking available on both sides of the school. Or think about carpooling with your neighbors.

We look forward to seeing all of our parents
at this very important event.
