A Special "Hoozah!" to the MS Team

Did you know how much our middle school team pours into their work with students? Catch a pic of them from their trip last week at Camp Tecumseh. Imagine 27 teenagers, late nights, cool temps, shower sharing, tooth brushing debates, smelly socks, and 24/7 supervision away from family and the comforts of home...Wow, are we lucky to have them! They provided an incredible community building experience for our middle schoolers. THANK YOU!

Calling Attendance - update & clarification

During this transition time at the front desk, we ask that Lower & Upper attendance be called in each morning to extension 1000 by a teacher. Deadline to call is 10:00 each morning.

Please remember that we are needing the name of the child/ren who are absent as well as a reason if known - many times parents contact the teachers rather than calling the school directly. Thank you for your help with this!

Feed the Teachers

We have tried a few different things in the past on Conference Days - we have...

  1. done nothing
  2. Had lots of food delivered to one spot where all had to come get it
  3. Had small amounts of food at each building
  4. Had lunch on one day only
  5. Had pizzas delivered to the various buildings

All of these were nice (well, not #1 so much) but also created added a level of chaos that wasn't really needed on an already busy day. So - this year, Macy has asked parents to try something different.... are you ready for it?!

Each classroom teacher/assistant will have a sack lunch prepared especially for them for BOTH conference days by a parent and delivered to them. You will also be getting a healthy snack for you to enjoy too!


If you have any dietary needs, please email Macy ASAP so she can be sure to let the parents know what you need/don't need!

Faculty Childcare for Conferences

Please email Macy by Wednesday, October 21 if you are needing childcare during conferences. If she does not hear from you by that time, there may not be a space available!

We have childcare available on:

  • Thursday, Oct 29 from 10:30-4:00
  • Friday, Oct 30 from 8:00 - 4:15

*please note that you may have to step away from your conference to allow you time to pick up your child/ren by 4:15. Once the schedule is set, I will be sure to share with you who is providing childcare. Thank you!
