Elementary School Meet-the-Teacher Events (2021-2022 school year)

  • We know many families are anxiously awaiting details about back-to-school events that are traditionally held each year, such as orientations, ice cream socials, meet and greets, etc.  We are finalizing many of the details for those events and activities now. Please see meet-the-teacher information below. As soon as plans are finalized or should existing plans get adjusted, our schools will share updates with their specific school communities.

    Cascade View Elementary teachers and PTA invite you to join us on Thursday, September 2, to meet your teacher and check out your new classroom! Come to school to meet the teacher (entering rooms from the outer doors - teachers may also elect to meet all families outside). Students would have the option of dropping off school supplies in the room. Students may bring their backpacks and supplies and leave them at their new desks.

    Little Cedars Elementary
    We are looking forward to having students see their classroom on Thursday, September 2. All families will meet their teachers outside in the lower parking lot. Students will be the only ones entering the building. After meeting in the parking lot with your child’s teacher, they will be taking your child in the building to show them around and let them see the classroom. Once the students go in, we ask that parents/guardians go to the playground and wait for the teacher to bring your child to you. The PTA will have popsicles for the students once they meet on the playground. Parent/guardians should park in the upper parking lot or at Glacier Peak High School. The lower parking lot will be closed and that is where your child will find their teacher (by grade level) when you first arrive for the meet the teacher event. All parents/guardians and students are asked to please wear a face mask and maintain social distancing. So that the number of families and students can be limited at one time, please arrive at your specific time: 

    • 12:30- 1:15 p.m.- Last name beginning with A-G
    • 1:30- 2:15 p.m. - Last name beginning with H-O
    • 2:30- 3:15 p.m.- Last name beginning with P-Z

Intercom announcements will be made through the sessions. Masks must be worn while inside. The time between sessions will be used to transition cars out of the parking lot/field. From 6-7 p.m. on Thursday, September 2 Machias Elementary will also provide an opportunity for families to visit Machias to see their child’s classroom and drop off supplies if they are unable to attend during the day.
