October 21, 2015
PiE is again partnering with our schools to offer current, fifth grade parents, tours of the PAUSD middle schools: JLS, Jordan and Terman. Programs at the schools will include a central presentation by principals and staff, a question and answer period, and guided tours across the campus led by a school administrator or counselor. Only parents are invited to attend these tours. You are welcome to come 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour for some coffee and the chance to meet other incoming parents. Parking will be limited at all of the schools, so carpooling or biking is encouraged. Please keep a special watch out for students on bicycles.
Tours should be about 1 to 1.5 hours in length depending on the number of questions asked.
Due to space constraints, the tours are open to current fifth grade parents only. The timing of the tours at each school is as follows:
JLS: 8:15 AM in Room 730
Jordan: 8:30 AM & 10 AM in Multi-purpose Room
Terman: 8:15 AM in Library
