Welcome, new families!

Join us for the welcome back party: Sunday, August 12th
The annual “Welcome Back Party” will happen on Sunday, August 12, 4:30-6:00 PM. This is an opportunity to see old friends, to meet new ones, and see the class placements for the 2018-2019 school year. The PTA will host a popsicle party and new family treasure hunt to help your student get familiar with Briones!

Stop by the principal’s welcome: Tuesday, August 14th
Tuesday, August 14th is the first day of school! Classes begin at 8:15 AM, but please arrive early for community coffee and conversation from 7:30-8:15 AM. Then stay for the principal’s welcome in the MP room, 8:30-9:00 AM.

Look out for the PTA welcome packet
Your PTA Back-to-School Welcome Packet will include information on upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and membership information. Back-to-School packets will come home with your students in their backpacks on the first day of school.

Reach out if you have questions
