Thank you!

I'd like to extend a shout out and some gratitude for our elementary teachers and support staff for doing an incredible job during our IB Authorization Visit this week. With a last-minute date change from the IB, our teachers showed how incredibly flexible and knowledgeable they were.

I'd also like to thank Melissa Brodsky, VivĂ­an Moir, Christina Jerabek, Erin Cowell, Tonja Ewing-Gomez- Ethan Mott, Jessica Jerabek, Elizabeth Davis, Mateo Kolkowski, and Avery Flick for speaking with the IB reviewers on our parent and student panels. We are so proud of the hard work everyone has put in to this program and the growth we've seen to date is incredible.

Jeans for Troops Day-November 6th

On November 6th, we will be participating in the GI Go Funds, nationwide Jeans for Troops dress down day. Teachers, staff, and students who donate $5 or more to GI Go Fund, can wear their favorite pair of jeans to school on November 6th. This small donation will help provide supportive services to military veterans, including housing for homeless veterans, job placement for unemployed veterans, and healthcare assistance to disabled veterans. We encourage all who've donated to wear a patriotic shirt with their jeans that day.

Please join our team to make your donation by visiting

In addition to Jeans for Troops on November 6th, please see the flyer below for a celebration on November 11th.
