Message from Mrs. Sivadasan

We have had a great start to the school year and the month of September has brought new learning and new routines for our students. As always, our students have stepped up to the new challenges of the school year, and I continue to be humbled by an amazing staff of educators that make learning relevant and engaging for our students. Your children are in exceptional hands! As a school, we are purposeful about the environment we create for our students, and families and about the experiences are students have academically as well as socially/emotionally. Staff and Administration alike come together to design a vision road map for the year that guides the work we do along those lines. Please take some time to see what we have in store this year and I look forward to another great year of learning.

Construction Update:

We continue to wait on permits for the construction to begin, but our construction crew has been given permits to begin demolition. Our old uncovered playground has been removed as well as several feet of surrounding blacktop (see pictures below). The loading dock behind our cafeteria has also been demolished. Our vestibule is almost complete and should be fully operational shortly.


YMCA Play Every Day has also been coming three times a week to all of our lunch recesses and providing fun and enriching games for students to participate in.


As always, safety is our number one concern and as a staff we have been planning for construction for the past 7 months. We have plans in place for needing to exit the building in an emergency and will be practicing this with students during our routine safety drills.


*Please refer to my Principal's Corner e-news from June, August, and September for a review of what I have previously communicated regarding construction.


I will continue to update you as information comes my way. Please see below for pictures of the construction work so far.
