Event Details

Class Representatives Meeting:  Each class has a volunteer who acts as the liaison between the teachers and the parents.  This volunteer creates the work schedules, send out reminder emails, and organizes the class project for the auction.  Class Reps will meet in Room 11 to begin planning.

Park Play Dates: These will be held every week during the month of August at various local parks. Attendance is optional but it is a great way to meet your fellow Explorer Community prior to the start of school. A Board member will be in attendance and will wear our teal Explorer shirt. Feel free to introduce yourself and we look forward to making some great memories at the park!

Play Days at Explorer: Incoming students and their adults are invited to come and play at the school with their new classmates. This informal play day allows students to look around and get to know their school, teachers and new peers. Adults get a chance to get familiar with the campus and their new classmates too!

SCVC: Explorer is a member of a collective of parent participation preschools called SCVC, or the Santa Clara Valley Council or Parent Participation Preschools. We have a representative that attends their monthly meetings, assists in planning the annual SCVC conference, and keeps us connected to the other parent participation schools in our area. Check out their website at http://cooppreschools.com.

Parent Orientations: Each class will have its own parent orientation where the teachers will go over all of the routines and expectations for the adult that will be attending class as the "working parent". Of course this could actually be a grand parent, uncle, foster mother, or family friend. This meeting is for adults only so that you are able to ask questions and feel very comfortable with working in class.

New Family Meet and Greet:  This is an informal and optional night to come to Explorer to meet the teachers.  Board members will be present to show you around your new school.

Practice Classes: Your class representative will contact you by email to assign you to one of two practice classes. This is called a practice class because only half the class attends. Having only half the students that day allows the teachers to show everyone the classroom routines and answer any questions you may have. The other half of the class may choose to get to know each other that day at a park or play date.

First Day of Class: This date varies depending on the class, but eventually all students in a class will attend together for the first time!

Back to School Night: This will be our first Parent Education Class (PEC). There will be refreshments and socializing at 6:30pm. At 7pm we will begin sharing information about family commitments, logging into the website, the school calendar, Explorer wear, and more. The Board and teachers will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Maintenance Days: Once you are able to log into the website you will sign up for your maintenance days by going to the calendar and clicking on the Saturday you wish to attend. You will receive a confirmation email from the website once you have registered. Maintenance days are an important part of our commitment to the school and keeps the place where our children play and learn in top condition.

Board Meeting: The Board meets monthly to update school progress and make decisions in the interest of the school. Minutes are available.

Children's Ed Committee Meeting: In August, a Board member will contact you with your committee assignment. The Children's Ed Committee meets monthly to plan for the following month.

Fall Picnic: Our first major social event of the year! Come join us at Vasona County Park to spend the evening with other Explorer families socializing and playing a few games. Bring a picnic and a blanket. We look forward to seeing you there!
