Thank you to everyone who was able to complete the Annual Family Survey!


The School Life Committee and the Board of Trustees reviewed the compiled results on Tuesday. Click here to access the survey results in the secure section of our website. If you do not remember the password, Linda will be glad to give it to you.


One thing that was mentioned repeatedly each year in the survey is the addition of a music program. We have budgeted to add a music program and have posted the position. If you know of someone who might be interested in a part-time music position, please have them contact Shirley.


We will also be sure to let you know when other changes occur at school as a result of your suggestions on the survey.



Staff News for 2016 - 2017

We are excited to announce that Cara Engelbrecht and Stacey Meyer will be Co-Teachers in EC 5 next school year. They will provide a breakdown of responsibilities to the EC 5 families during the Back to School conferences.


Michelle Snell will be with Ms. Cory next school year.


Mrs. Kathryn Horner will join the Lower Elementary team and will work with each classroom.


As more changes occur, we will let you know. We are accepting applications for a part-time Music teacher and a part-time PE Assistant.

Three opportunities for incoming 1st Levels to get on the Road to Success in Lower Elementary. Children may attend one or all sessions. They do not need to know who their teacher will be - this will give them a chance to meet one to three of the Lower Elementary Teachers.


Registration closes on Friday, May 20, 2016. We need at least 5 students per session in order to offer the session. Families will be notified on Tuesday, May 24 if their session will happen.

Please see Shirley with any questions.
