Joining your student for lunch:  You may join your student during their scheduled lunch time. You can bring lunch in or sit with them while they eat school lunch. There are designated tables for parents to eat with their students, just look for the signs on the tables or you can sit at the tables outside. During the first 2 weeks of school and a few other testing days throughout the year lunch visitors will not be allowed. The school will communicate those testing days before hand.

Communication: The following are the primary ways our school and PTO communicates with families:

     -Living Tree. Living Tree is an electronic messaging app. Teachers will invite parents to join their class group. Parents can download the app on your electronic device or access it online at www.livingtree.com

     -PTO Communication Packets. At the beginning of every month we send home a PTO communication packet with the monthly newsletter and any other information for that month. The newsletter is also sent out to the PTO’s email list and available on the PTO website.

     -School Call Outs. The principal will do call outs periodically to inform families of happenings going on our campus. Make sure your phone number is always up to date with the school.

     -PTO emails. The PTO will send out information to our email list. Make sure you sign up to receive our emails. You can sign up to receive our emails on the home page of the PTO website or text SGPPTO to 22828.
