Meet the Staff

Unfortunately, we have cancelled our in-person Meet the Staff event for the 15th. In lieu of the in-person event, the staff have created short videos to help you put faces to the names of teachers.

Also, you should have received a "welcome" email from all of your child(ren)s teachers. We encourage open dialogue and encourage you to reach out to teachers should you have any course-specific questions. Teachers will do their best to get back to you in a timely manner.

Office Team- Putting faces to names

Course change requests- Closing Sunday September 12th at NOON

If your child is interested in making a course change you will need to fill in the attached COURSE CHANGE REQUEST form.


The form is now open but will CLOSE SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 12 at noon. All requests for the entire year MUST be in by Sunday through the google form.


All requests will be reviewed by the grade level administrator. We will do our best to accommodate requests in the week of Sept 13-17, although some moves may not be possible due to high numbers in classes or timetable constraints.

Thank you for your patience as we work through them.

Hot Lunch - September 24

Hot lunch is starting up again. Our next Hot lunch will be on September 24. Nitza's Pizza ordering information will be sent out on Monday, September 13, and will remain open until September 17th.

Stay tuned!

Thank you to all of our parents for being diligent about our student safety during morning drop off. We are doing our best to keep students safe as they cross at the crosswalk and in the parking lot.


Drop off zones are (see map below);

1) The parent loop on Colwill along the side of the building

2) Past the school on Colwill

3) In the SAP parking lot


Please DO NOT use the staff parking lot for morning drop-off and after-school pick up. These times are very busy and staff that must leave are unable to get out of the parking lot in a timely manner.


Please be mindful of your speed around the school and a reminder that there are NO U-turns.

Crossing monitor- Mrs. Snaterse

A huge thank you to Mrs. Snaterse who is out every morning and after school to ensure students are able to cross Colwill Blvd safely.

Please be kind and respectful to her as she is doing her part to keep the traffic moving as quickly as possible while keeping our students safe.
