Happy Summer!!

Posted on Updated on

Dear Families and Caregivers,

Thank you for a wonderful school year! We hope you enjoy the summer months and we look forward to seeing everyone back in September.

We will also be sending you a school supplies essentials list. These are all of the supplies that will be needed for the first few weeks in September. Once your child has been placed in their new class, you will receive a classroom specific list of supplies. We are hoping that you will be able to collect the essential items from things you have in your home already and the classroom specific lists will be less expensive, have only the items your child will need, and you will be able to order them online beginning on Friday, September 7th. This is a new process we are undertaking with the goal of reusing materials, ordering less and saving our families money.

When we return in September, our focus will be on building a strong community in which every student and family belongs. This theme is becoming more and more important as our school community grows.
