Letter from the principal
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! This promises to be another wonderful year filled with both our traditional celebrations and events and many new ones as well. The children and staff are excited to be back in school and have already begun to learn, explore, and create.
We have many opportunities for family members to share in our children’s learning – Open Houses, trips, classroom celebrations, and performances. Please take advantage of these opportunities, as the children love to show off what they can do. Throughout the year, you will be receiving information via flyers, emails and newsletters related to school events. Please keep an eye out for these.
I look forward to seeing you throughout the year. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me by calling the school.
