Please don't forget...We would like to invite all NEW little CAVS to our event this tomorrow. Students will have the opportunity to get acquainted with our staff, the building, and even our buses. We would love to open this up for all of our new students that would like to get some jitters out of the way all while having fun! Students will take a tour, meet staff, play on the playground, get familiar with a bus then take a short trip on their bus to the high school and back, participate in some fun crafts, and even have a bite of lunch! We will ask that parents bring students inside for drop off, we will get some information from our families, then send them on their way; you will pick your student up from the lunchroom door just as we do on a regular school day. Please have your student at Burdine at 9:00 and you may come and get them at 1:00. We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
