Hello Terrace Park Families,
I hope you have been enjoying your summer! The end of August marks the “official” return of all staff. Of course, many staff have been back for weeks getting ready for the return of our students. It’s going to be a GREAT year and we can’t wait to see you and your student(s) at 2:00 p.m. at the Back to School Event on Tuesday, September 6. Our Office Staff is here to help you in any way we can. Our Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. Please stop by and say hello and as always, if you have any questions, please give our main office a call- 425-431-7482.
Mary Freitas, Principal
Back to School Event with a Teacher Meet and Greet-
Classrooms will be open on Tuesday, September 6, 2:00-3:00 to meet your child’s teacher! Students can bring their school supplies early, find their desk, and learn where to line up on the first day of school.
PTA Back to School Event-
Overlapping with the Terrace Park Teacher Meet and Greet mentioned above is the FREE Terrace Park PTA Back to School Sweet Treat Event at 3:00 p.m. This is a great time to meet the parents of students who will be in your child’s class.
All families will receive an email on the afternoon of Friday, September 2nd, with their child’s teacher assignment. To protect student and family privacy, Terrace Park will not post class lists in the Commons or Gym for public viewing this year. This is new but we think it is important to keep students safe.
