Happy Friday!

It was wonderful to welcome our Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten students this week. We now have all of our grade levels attending and our year is off to a great start! We have enjoyed seeing students and getting to know them throughout the day. Watching our older students help our younger students get to where they need to go has been a highlight of this week.


We wanted to thank everyone for their flexibility. The beginning of a school year always proves to be a little challenging, but as we gain experience, our systems will become more efficient.


We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and we look forward to welcoming your students next week for our first five full days.

Please send your child to school with a refillable water bottle each day. Students will be drinking from these water bottles throughout the day, as our drinking fountains will not be accessible due to COVID precautions.
