News and Notes
Happy early Valentine's Day! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the Super Bowl. Don't forget that there is no school on Friday, due to a teacher Inservice. Tomorrow is a Valentine's themed dress down day.
Our music teacher, Ms. Maria Daggett-Eskinazi, will no longer be working with us. Friday was her last day. I am currently in the process of hiring a music teacher and I will keep you updated as soon as I do.
Thank you to the Parents Guild for planning the Community Pints event at Captain Lawrence. It was great to see so many families there! I had a fabulous time and enjoyed some delicious pizza!
Thank you for remembering to not park in the bus area during drop-off or pickup. That area is for busses only. Please continue to be mindful of staying in your cars at all times.
Please see below for enrollment information. The first class that has 100% reenrollment will receive a pizza party. Who will win the pizza party this year? It's anyone's game!!
Thank you and have a wonderful week!
Enrollment for 2023-2024 School Year Opens Friday!
Our enrollment/registration process opens on Friday, February 17th, 2023.
We will be using the TADS system for enrollment/registration again this year. When you complete the enrollment process for each student, and pay the registration fee, your student will be guaranteed placement for the 2023-2024 school year. All parents, both returning and new, will receive a separate email for each student who will be attending our school. This email, which will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org, will include a brief overview of the registration process and a link that is unique to your student’s information for enrollment.
Financial Aid for Returning families will also open as of February 17. Requalifying families will receive invitations to apply for financial assistance.
An incentive rate is being offered for those who register on or before Apri 16th, 2023. You must complete this process no later than April 16th to receive the reduced rate of $125 per child. If you register after April 16th, it will be $225 per child.
Thank you to those who have already registered!
