Greetings from St. Johns Public Schools,

Riley Elementary Staff would like to invite you to our curriculum night on the evening of Wednesday August 27th.  This is a chance for parents to meet with teachers to learn about some of the things their student will be learning.  This year we will have scheduled blocks of times for each grade.  We have done this to ensure that parents and guardians of students in multiple grades can attend all of their students’ classrooms.  There will be high school students from Goodwins to help supervise students while parents attend their students' grade level time.  

Each grade level will have a 30 minute block to meet with parents.  If you plan to attend, please be prompt if possible.  

Kindergarten teachers will be meeting from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with parents.

First and second grade teachers will be meeting with parents from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Third grade teachers will be meeting with parents from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Fourth and fifth grade teachers will be meeting with parents from 7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m

This is a chance for parents to get an overview of their students’ school year from their teachers.

We look forward to seeing you there.  Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation.
