PPS Announces Its Back-To-School Events

Are you the parent of a PPS student? Here are some fun upcoming events you’ll want to know about.

Porters Point School’s Incoming Kindergarten Social will be on Sunday, August 28 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the PPS playground. This is fun way for new students to become acquainted with one another.

On Tuesday, August 30, there will be an open house from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. for first- and second-grade students and their parents.

Also on Tuesday, August 30 and for the third year in a row, Porters Point School will introduce new kindergarteners to school with Smart Start from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This is a three-hour mini-school day and lunch to help transition incoming students to the daily routine at school.

All staff members are on hand to help with Smart Start, which allows students to meet one another and also to try out the lunchtime process. Students will experience the entire operation from learning how to go through the line to where they can find milk and where they should put their trays after they have finished. This is a fun day and a happy adventure for brand-new students to become acquainted with their new environment.

It is amazing that the new school year has already arrived, isn’t it?
