Dear Families,

You are invited to attend our annual Open House, next Wednesday, September 30, 2015, from 4:00pm-8:00pm. The hours this year have been extended to afford time for families to enjoy dinner, as we are hosting a few of Buffalo’s premier food trucks to bring additional spice to the evening.

We have prepared what we hope is an enjoyable and informative evening for everyone. There will be two(2) pre-presentations, notably the 5:30pm internet safety presentation, provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, called Net Smartz.

These will be followed by two(2) identical Open House Sessions, to accommodate the work schedules of parent’s and guardian’s and those who have multiple children attending the school.
