Happy October!Over the last month, it has truly been an honor to see so many families at the Driscoll School. Whether it was at the back to school night picnic or at morning and afternoon drop off and pick up, the pleasant greetings and smiling faces are just a few of the many things that makes this community so special.I look forward to seeing many of you during this week and next at Driscoll Open House. The schedule 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 amGrades 6-8: Tuesday, October 10 from 8:00 am – 9:40 amFor K-5 Open house, parents/guardians will gather in the theater for a brief welcome by school leaders, PTO leaders and introduction of specialists between 8:00 am and 8:20 am.
