OSS Technology Campus K-6 Curriculum Night

by Alicia Greene -

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The first and biggest event of the year at Orlando Science Technology Campus is Curriculum Night. There teachers present grade specific curriculum information that will cover what your child is expected to learn and master in the 2022-2023 school year. The times provided below are ranges that families can come to the classrooms. You must RSVP to this event by accessing the sign-up genius below.

Due to time constraints and multiple families visiting at once, this is not a time to conduct a conference with the teacher about your student.  Families can reach out directly to their student’s teacher and arrange a conference (in addition to the four prescheduled Parent-Teacher Conference Nights). Your student will receive their syllabuses, handbooks, supplies (if ordered), and more when you visit the classroom. 

 OSS will have its Curriculum Night on two days: 

  • Tuesday, August 30th, 2022, for K-5th grade
  • Thursday, September 1st, 2022, for 6th grade 5:15-7:45 
             * 6th Grade Curriculum Night will involve Parents & Students rotating based on their student’s schedule.

To sign up for Curriculum Night, please go to the signupgenius link below and select your child's grade. Then you will be prompted to sign up in various time sessions based on your child’s teacher.
