Hope you all have had a great week and that your child is adjusting to the back to school schedule and routines. We are noticing progress on a daily basis as we guide and teach our expectations.

Just wanted to remind everyone that there is not school for students on Tuesday, September 9th as this is Primary Election Day. Teachers will be participating in Professional Development with a focus on a new web based diagnostic assessment allowing us to target student areas of strength and need to help us differentiate instruction for our students. We are very excited to move in this direction!

Our Open House for Grades 1 and 2 is fast approaching. It is this coming Thursday evening- September 11. You should have received an invitation in your child's home/school folder.

Open House for Kindergarten in on September 18th at 6PM

Both Open House events are exclusively for parents so that we can focus on answering your questions and share the learning that is happening in the classroom.

Today we kicked off our PBIS program with a visit from Johnny the K! He always pleases our crowd and today was no exception! We had so much fun reinforcing our message of respect, responsibility and safety! Check this out!!! Click on the video link so you can see how excited our students and teachers were to participate in his awesome show!

****A final note that is so very important- we truly need to ask all parents dropping off children to please make sure you wait until your child is safely onto the sidewalk before you pull away and that all children exit vehicles from the passenger side of the car. 

Thank you so much for all of your support and responses to the blog! I am glad you find this information helpful and I hope it serves a small glimpse into the experiences of your child over the course of the week!

  2. My daughter had a wonderful time as well.
