TRIMESTER AWARDS:

We love celebrating our Colts' achievements throughout the year. Your child's teacher(s) will let you know if he/she is receiving an end of the year award. Each grade level offers awards in various categories, which may include attendance, reading, academic achievement and citizenship. Find the details about the awards below - different grades are being awards on different dates/times (we apologize for the inconvenience to our working families!).

Colt Gathering

We will be hosting our last Colt Gathering of the year this month. Identical sessions will be held in the library on Wed., 5/29 at 6 pm (care is available for school aged children) and Thurs., 5/30 at 9:45 am.


We will review our progress towards our 2018-19 goals, the highlights from our parent survey, and we'll preview our goals/plans for 2019-20. Please join us! No RSVP is needed...just come!

Peter Pan, Jr. Video

We are happy to give families copies of the Peter Pan, Jr. production digitally. Please bring a new flash drive (minimum of 10GB in size) in a baggy or envelope labeled PPJ and your name. We'll copy the file to the drive and let you know when you can pick it up in the office! Contact Pam with any questions at 916 434 5292.
