Del Mar Hills Academy welcomes parents of 2014-2015 Kindergarteners to come tour the classrooms and the rest of the school on March 17 at 8:15 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. You do not need to reserve a space ahead of time — just check in at the school office when you arrive. (Full disclosure: given the date, there is a distinct possibility that local leprechauns may have wreaked some sort of havoc in the school library.)
Then, join present students and families at the school’s 21st Century Learning Night, on March 27, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Join Principal Lerner for an overview of the Common Core shifts in instruction. You will have the opportunity to explore hands-on Science, CGI Math, Math Games, Chrome Books, Narrative Chains, P.E. and other fun activities with your child. From 5:30 to 6 p.m., there will be complimentary pizza, courtesy of the PTA, and the whole evening, with break-out sessions, will last until 7:30 p.m. The kindergarten team will accompany pre-K families to the sessions and be available to answer questions about kindergarten. The program is designed for pre-K through 6th grade students and parents only, but childcare for siblings (no infants, please) will be provided courtesy of the PTA if you RSVP at www.delmarhillspta.org.

Del Mar Hills Academy of Arts & Sciences is located at 14085 Mango Drive in Del Mar. For more information about the school visit www.dmusd.org/Domain/11.
