Class Assignments and PTA Back-to School Packet
On August 10th, families will be able to see their class assignments as well as pick up their Back to School packets.  We’ll also have plenty of Otter Pops for the kids.  Below is the schedule by grade.  So please come by, grab your packets and Otter Pops, and catch up with fellow Duveneck families!

If you are unable to pick-up your packets, we will have them available at the Parent Coffee for the first day of school or at the front office.  Class assignments will also be sent via Infinite Campus.

First Day of School Parent Coffee and Student Assembly
All parents are invited to join us on the first day of school (Aug. 11) right after drop off.  We’ll have plenty of coffee and pastries as we high-five to the start of the school year.  In addition, parents will be invited to stay and take part in the school assembly on the black top.  This will be an amazing opportunity to get a first glimpse of our entire community together!

Back-to-School Night

Duveneck will be hosting Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, August 16th.  This is a great opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, understand more about the grade’s curriculum for the year, as well as ask any questions you may have.  Additional details to follow.
