Welcome to the Addison community! Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions to help you find your way around.
Before school starts
What's the best way to find out the latest news?
All parents are asked to provide an email address so they can be placed on school-wide, grade-level, and classroom email lists. Throughout the school year, you will be receiving email communications via these lists, so please add email@example.com to your email address books to ensure these emails don't end up in your spam folder.
Also, here are a few more ways to stay in touch:
What resources are available to new families?
To start with, read through this FAQ Section! Next, sign up for the Addison eAdvisor and Addison Facebook page. If you are a kindergarten family, don't miss the Kindergarten Potluck (held on Packet Pick-Up Day, a few days before the first day of school). Plan to spend some time at the Back to School Coffee on the first day of school. Various PTA committees and after school organizations will have tables where representatives can talk about their programs and services. Addison 101 is an event designed specifically for new families; during this event, PTA representatives discuss the various programs and services available to kids and families at Addison. Finally, mark your calendars for Back to School Night. During this event, parents head to their child's classrooms, where their child's teacher will discuss curriculum and classroom policies. Parents will also get the chance to learn about various school organizations such as PiE, Project Cornerstone, and the PTA.
What school supplies do I need to buy for my child?
The PTA pays for all school supplies, so you don't need to buy a thing! Your child will get all pencils / crayons / paper / scissors / etc... in class.
