At Back to School nights, parents and guardians of students in grades K – 5 are invited to the primary campus to meet their teacher, pick up car tags, shop at the uniform exchange, and discover how they can support the school.

The Meridian Café will be providing a menu tasting of the amazing food they serve our students and staff. RockSports will have spirit wear for sale. 

Families whose students' last name starts with A-K will attend August 2 and families whose students' last names start with L-Z will attend August 3.
