Welcome Back to School!

What a unique start to the school year. As we wait for the smoke and  air to clear, we’ll continue to keep students indoors.

Thanks to all of you for your enthusiasm and  happy smiles as we transition back to school! It’s great to see our returning families! Parents, prepare yourself for a few weeks of tired, sometimes weepy kids as we get back into the routine of bedtime, rigor during the day, and an adult constantly telling your kids what to do and where to go.  I encourage you to try to leave the weekends free of activities to allow the kids to have some unstructured down time. It’s hard!  AND, we can do hard things!!

Here are upcoming dates in September. Please note that Parent Information Night (Grades 1-5 only) will run in two sessions, so that you can attend one classroom the first session, and another classroom the second session.  If you have more than two kiddos here, bring another adult to divide and conquer. We are working to minimize the impact on your schedules (and we recognize we’ll be maximizing our parking lot).
