Dear Parents and Guardians,

It was great to see so many of you at curriculum night! I hope that you now have a better sense of the big picture and what your kids will be doing this year.

On Monday, we will kick off the first full week of school with a traditional
School Wide Morning Meeting!

SWMM – School-wide Morning Meetings
School-wide Morning Meetings are bi-monthly gatherings
of the entire school in the auditorium. They are held 8:50-9:15 a.m.
on Monday mornings. Classes go upstairs from the yard, drop off bags & coats, and then come back down to the auditorium.
Parents and Guardians, we welcome you to join us whenever
you can for these gatherings and sit with your child.

Lets’s take a look at what’s ahead.

A shout out to all of the parents and guardians for getting your kids off to a great start! Arriving on time for line up and pick up is something kiddos feel good about. We encourage everyone to make this happen daily. We also ask that you exit the yard once the teachers have dismissed your child(ren) to you. This helps keep everyone safe and allows our After School programs to begin using the yard. Thank you!

Feel free to reach out any time with questions.
Enjoy your weekend and see you in the yard on Monday!

All best wishes,
James
