Back to School Night Reminders


Dear Didion families,

Back to School Night (BTSN) is tomorrow, Wednesday, September 14th . Here are some reminders about the event: 

Presentations for K-3 and 7th & 8th grade: 5:30pm – 6:35pm

Presentations for 4th-6th grade: 6:25pm – 7:30pm

Community Announcements on the blacktop from 6:25pm – 6:35pm

We ask that students not attend the class presentations (they can be outside) and that when possible only one parent per child enter each class in order to minimize crowding inside. 

Fall Fest is back!


Welcome back, Fall Fest! Our beloved annual tradition has returned and is scheduled for Friday, October 21st. Presales are now available on the PTA website. Presales will end on October 17th.
