Orientation / Open House Information

Elementary Buildings to Host Open Houseopen house image

The teaching teams at both Dysart-Geneseo and La Porte City Elementary will be holding a “Meet Your Teacher” night this fall on August 21st. All classrooms will be open and teachers will be available. Parents and students are encouraged to bring their school supplies, find their classrooms, and meet their teachers during the hour-long open house. All students, parents, and patrons of the school district are invited.

The “Meet Your Teacher” night is not designed to be a parent-teacher conference. Again, it is simply an opportunity for our students and parents to come in before the first day of school, get their supplies organized, find their rooms, and meet our teaching teams. At LPC Elementary the TK classrooms will meet from 5:00-6:00 PM., followed by K-5 from 6:00 to 7:00 PM.

DG Elementary will host their event for kindergarten through 5th graders from 6:00 to 7:00 PM.

The preschool at LPC Elementary is holding their open house August 14, with the three-year-olds from 4:30 to 5:30 followed by the four-year-olds from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. There are still openings in both the three- and four-year-old classes. Registration packets will be available that night.


Student Orientations

An orientation is planned for Union Middle School sixth graders on Wednesday, August 21, from 5:00 to 6:00 PM. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders who have moved into the district this summer are also invited to attend the orientation, but must call Union Middle School at 476-5100 (1-800-670-5237) so they have their name, address and grade level.

During the orientation, students and their parents will be given a tour of the building as they walk through a typical day’s class schedule. The Middle School academic and activity programs will be explained by Principal Mark Albertsen and counselor Jill Aalerks. Students and their parents will be given an opportunity to ask questions about the Middle School rules and procedures.

Students and/or their parents who need transportation to Dysart for orientation can catch a shuttle bus in front of Union High School at 4:30 PM.

An orientation is planned for Union High School freshman students and other high school students who are new to the district on Tuesday, August 20 , from 8:00 to 11:00 AM at Union High School in LaPorte City. High school students who live in the Dysart area and need transportation to the orientation can catch a shuttle bus in front of Union Middle School at 7:30 AM.
