We will be busy all summer preparing the building and classrooms to welcome back our Briggs students in September. A lot will be going on over the summer to make our school a place where students feel happy, comfortable and ready to learn.
Summer reading and math assignments may be found under “Quick Links” for all grade levels.
We have scheduled a Visitation Day on Tuesday, September 3rd when all students and their parents are invited to Briggs to visit their child’s classroom and tour the building. Visitation hours are between 1:00-3:00 pm.
All the information you will need for the beginning of the school year will be found on the Realtime Parent Portal on or about August 15th. You should get into the habit of checking the portal frequently for updates and information. Also make sure that your contact information is up-to-date.
The first day of school is Thursday, September 5th and Back to School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, September 11th.
