PECI is excited to host our first Grade 7 & 8 Parent Open House on October 11tth from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. The evening is an opportunity to come together for a meet and greet with the staff in the Junior Cafeteria, hear some helpful tips for being a Panther Parent and then proceed up to see the classrooms where your student(s) learn.
We respectfully remind parents that this is not a parent/guardian/teacher interview, rather a social engagement for everyone to enjoy. Parents and guardians seeking a specific discussion with a teacher regarding their student are requested to contact the school to book an appointment.
Research shows that students who have parents/guardians who are engaged in their learning are more successful in school. In short, when it matters to you, it matters to our students. We hope you are able to join us on October 11th, Happy Fall until we meet again. #BetterTogether
