2017 Open House Driscoll Schedule


Dear Families,I am writing to you with information regarding Driscoll School Open House.  This event is a wonderful opportunity for parents and guardians to learn more about curriculum and instruction, daily schedules, teacher expectations, units of study, math and literacy, assessments, and more. Classroom teachers will offer brief presentations and respond to general questions families may have.While this event has historically taken place during evening hours, this year’s Open House will occur during the school day.  Please note that finding an evening time has proven to be quite challenging this year due to holidays, programming and other scheduling conflicts. Therefore, the Driscoll School has chosen to explore a daytime model similar to ones successfully used at other elementary schools in Brookline.The schedule for Open House at the K-5 level will be as follows:Grade 1 and Grade 2: Monday, October 2 from 8:00 am – 9:00 amGrade K and Grade 3: Wednesday, October 4 from 8:00 am – 9:00 amGrade 4 & Grade 5: Friday, October 6 from 8:00 am – 9:00 amBetween 8:00 am and 8:20 am, parents/guardians will gather in the theater for a brief welcome by school leaders and introduction of specialists. At 8:25 am, families will travel to their child’s classroom for a brief presentation. During that time students will enjoy time at the playground, which will be supervised by staff. At 9:00 am, families will say goodbye and students will return to their classrooms. It is important to remember that Open House is a time for general questions about the school year. If you have individual questions about your child, please contact your child’s teacher via email or phone to set up a time to talk.Please note that information about Open House for grades 6-8 will be sent out early next week.  Open House for the middle school grades will also occur during the school day. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility.I look forward to seeing you soon!Sincerely,Suzie--
