Open House

Tuesday, March 29, 2016


Please join us for Nixon School’s Open House on Tuesday, March 29 between 6:00 and 7:15 pm. Our classrooms will have examples of student work on display. Our intention is to showcase typical examples of student learning. Some of these will be work in progress while others will be summative pieces. Your child will be able to lead you on a tour of his/her classroom.

We are adding something new this year to our Open House. Our 4th and 5th graders as well as the 3rd grade singing club will be performing in two music concerts. The first one will be from 6:00 to 6:30 pm and the second will be from 6:40 to 7:10 pm. Parents and students attending the concerts are asked to remain for the entire 30 minutes, rather than getting up leaving or arriving part way through the concerts. Families attending the first concert will have time to visit classrooms after the concert and those attending the second concert will have time to visit classrooms before the concert begins. Our music teachers will give their students directions about when to arrive in order to get set up and be ready to perform on time. Please try and plan your visit accordingly.

Come join the celebration of learning!
