Here are the dates and times for the information sessions (a parent or guardian must attend one of these sessions for their child to be eligible to apply to Winterhaven - children are welcome to attend the sessions, but it is not required that they come to the information sessions):
March 17 - 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm
We will start the information sessions in the Winterhaven auditorium with a short presentation, which will then be followed by presentations by our kindergarten and 6th grade teachers. As these are the 2 grades where we accept the most students, we will only be answering questions about these grades and these classrooms. If you have a child that is in a different grade, you are welcome to sit in on these presentations, but the classroom teachers will not be able to answer specific questions about grades other than kindergarten and 6th grade.
