All School Welcome Back Orientation Brunch

09/06/2014

Please join us for a potluck brunch and a morning filled with information about the new school year. Whether you’re a new parent or have had children in the school for years, you’ll want to visit the information tables in the School Hall to learn about the school lunch program and transportation; our athletics, foreign language, and music programs; the Yuletide Fair and other parent volunteer opportunities. Chat with faculty from the kindergarten, lower school and high school; get your questions answered about tuition payments, school administration and college guidance; and find out about activities throughout Hawthorne Valley Association.

We welcome your contributions to the brunch – hopefully the weather will be fine and we’ll have picnic tables on the lawn outside the School Hall. Childcare will be available for those not able to make other arrangements.
