Dear Falcon Family,

I would like to invite you to attend our Virtual Curriculum Night on Thursday, September 10 starting at 6:00 p.m. During this event, you will follow your student's online schedule to meet with each of your child's First Quarter teachers via Zoom. Each session will be 15 minutes long with 2 minutes in between for parents to move to their next Zoom session.

What can I expect to learn during our Virtual Curriculum Night?

  • Information about each of your child's teachers.
  • Information about the specific course curriculum and the essentials of what you can expect your child to learn in the classroom.
  • Information about general classroom expectations (currently on-line learning expectations).
  • How to navigate the teacher's Canvas page.
  • Information about assignments and grading.
  • Information on how to best contact the teacher for support.
How do I access the Zoom Sessions?

I will provide you with the links to all Zoom Sessions in our newsletter this weekend.
What if I am unable to attend the event on September 10?
While the Zoom Sessions will be live, we will record the sessions to allow anyone who is unable to attend the event and opportunity to hear from their child's teachers. I will send these sessions to you in our Weekly Newsletter the weekend following our event.

Will I be able to ask questions and what do I do if I have questions?

Although the Zoom Sessions will be live, we ask that all parents use our Curriculum Night Question Form to submit questions for response by our staff. The form will close by the end of the day on Tuesday, September 15. We will answer all of your questions by email or phone call by the end of the day on Friday, September 18. Whether you participate in the live sessions or watch the recorded session, you are welcome to use the Curriculum Night Question Form to follow-up with us!

Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions at 636-891-6850. We look forward to "meeting" with you on September 10th!

With Falcon Pride,
