Here's a glimpse of last week's Community Gathering. You are invited to join us every Wednesday morning at 8:15am as we gather and sing together.

Family Conferences and Half Days on 11/20 and 11/21

Our teachers are hard at work on our first set of progress reports! Family Conferences will be held next Thursday and Friday (11/20 and 11/21). Teachers will be in touch about scheduling conferences later this week. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment in order to have time to read through your child's progress report before you meet with the teachers.


Our students will be dismissed at 12PM on 11/20 and 11/21 to allow time for teachers and families to meet together to discuss each child's progress. We WILL have our YMCA After School program and bus service on the half days next week.

Supplies Still Needed to Keep Our School Clean and Healthy

Thanks for the supplies that were donated in the past week. We are still in need of many more of the items listed below. Please drop off to Brooke and Michelle's office and we will share with the classrooms. Thank you!


Items We Need:


  • Large Packages of Paper Towels like these. Any brand is fine with us.
  • Packages of Baby Wipes like these. Any brand is fine with us. Unscented please.
  • Scrubby Sponges like these. Any brand is fine.
  • Microfiber Dish Towels like these. Any brand is fine. We need a few sets of these for the Community Room.
  • Newspapers to cover tables during Visual Arts Classes with Studio In A School

Please join us next week for "An Evening With Compass"

Please join us for the November 19 fundraiser we are hosting at the BRIC House. Details can be found here (the password for the Family Rates is "compass"). The night will be a fun opportunity for all of us to mingle, get to know each other better and celebrate what we have all accomplished together thus far. Please let Todd know if you would like a donated ticket.

Kindergarten Donors Choose Project

We have one Donors Choose Project posted right now. This is a very important project that will bring essential Emergent Storybooks to our kindergarten classrooms. The kindergarten classes started a new reading unit today and they need these books to complete the work of the unit. Please let us know if you are able to help out and/or share this project with your friends. Thanks!

We created an online registry using So Kind for items and services we need around the school. Many of the items we are looking for can be used. Please take a look and let us know if you can help out with anything on the list. Thanks!
