Thursday, August 23rd – “Quail Run Parent Night” - K-5 Parents - 5:30 to 7:00
This evening event is for all parents in Grades K-5, and we would ask that you try to attend without your children, if possible. This night will feature 3 sessions to help accommodate families who have more than one child attending Quail Run. Teachers will share information, goals, expectations regarding classroom climate, curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Teachers will not be available to individually conference with parents regarding their student(s) during this event. For your convenience, you may choose when and how to participate in this evening event by using the schedule below:
Session 1 is from 5:30 to 5:55 – Please report directly to your child’s classroom to hear from and visit with his or her teacher.
Session 2 is from 6:00 to 6:25 – This will be a repeat session for parents who have more than one child attending Quail Run. Please report directly to your child’s classroom to hear from and visit with his or her teacher. During this time, I will also offer an informational session in the gymnasium to share school goals and answer questions from parents.
Session 3 is from 6:30 to 7:00 - We will offer a repeat informational session during this time in the gymnasium to share school goals and answer questions from parents.
Our Quail Run PTO will also be present and available to help you sign up for ways to be involved and engaged through a variety of committees. They will also have this year’s Quail Run T-Shirt available for sale. See below for more details about Room Parents and Parties.

Calling all dads, step-dads, grandpas, and other male role models in the lives of our students, please join us for an important orientation event on Wednesday, August 29th from 6:15 to 7:15. We will review important information about our very popular and successful WATCH DOGS program. A pizza dinner will be provided for all who attend and the online sign-up process will open that evening after the orientation session concludes. Actual WATCH DOGS days will not begin at Quail Run until Monday, September 17th.
NEW: This year will feature 1/2 day sign up options for our WATCH DOGS program, meaning you will be able to sign up for an AM or PM commitment or you can sign up for BOTH AM and PM for a full day experience.
Quail Run PTO Room Parents and Party Planning Committee
Please be on the lookout for opportunities to sign up for a variety of committees during our Parent Night on August 23rd. The role of Room Parent will shift slightly this year to more of a communication liaison between the teacher and the classroom community of parents as well as silent auction basket point of contact. An actual Party Planning Committee will be assembled this year, which will include asking up to three parents per classroom to participate. This group will be led by a PTO officer to coordinate our three parties for the year.
Family Weather Plan - End of Day Dismissal
We wanted to pass along a strategy regarding our end of day dismissal procedure, especially when weather interrupts the normal routine of walking home, etc. There will be days where rain or other weather arrives near the time when dismissal occurs, and we often receive a number of calls to communicate changes to individual student departure plans. While we work diligently to communicate each of these forward through our office to teachers and then to students, we would encourage each family to have a consistent backup plan that your student is aware of in case the message does not reach him or her. For example, one who would normally walk home might instead go to Boys and Girls Club (if enrolled) or meet you at a predetermined pick up location (out back or up front), just in case we are not able to successfully reach your student with the change in your preferred departure procedure.
