Calling All In Coming Parents 

We have a Parent to Parent Mentor Program.  If you would like to be paired up with a current parent at AA Open to help you with any questions you may have about joining the AA Open community, please email Clare Sansburn (cgsansburn@gmail.com) with the following information: name, child's name, email address, phone number, any preference for pairing (geographical area, language spoken, etc.). 

We also hold incoming student Summer Play Dates (see schedule above).  Dates will be set up in July and August to give you the opportunity to meet other incoming kindergarten families and to help your kindergartner start to become more familiar with the school and his/her future classmates.  Contact Abbey Woodman at abbeyw@gmail.com.
