A Message From Dr. Ricks

Parents and Friends,

What a wonderful Awards service we had this morning! It was so nice to see all of you here to help celebrate your children and their accomplishments. Despite the challenges of getting back in the habit of early mornings, everyone has seemed enthusiastic about being back in school. January is a really good month to settle in for good teaching and learning. This third quarter often marks the real high point of the year with the most substantive curricular work, so please continue to support them and encourage them to work hard.

This Friday marks our 3rd Annual Barn Party, and I am looking forward to good food, music, and conversation as we enjoy the great atmosphere of the Napoli's barn. I hope that you can join us; please call the office for ticket information.

I am continually impressed by the fantastic work displayed outside the classrooms. The 2nd graders are writing poetry and designing "fraction pizzas," 3rd graders are learning about waterfalls and landforms using the Batik art form, and 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are deep into research and preparation for upcoming Science and Social Studies fairs. The Spring Semester promises to be full of exciting events and opportunities. I love seeing your children eagerly take on these challenges in their journeys as lifelong learners. Enjoy this brisk weather!
