Principal's Notes and Highlights
Today was a good day, but it had the potential to be so much better. We had planned to announce the completion of the playground at Town Hall Meeting. Unfortunately, the PIP (soft surface) installers ran out of supplies. I've been told it will open early next week. We did go through playground training with students this morning. They loved getting to see it up close and we saw many butterflies. It was a great introduction to our new play space.
- A special thank you to Allen Garrett for sharing some incredible photos of the playground under construction. I also included a video he shared in this newsletter. We are definitely maximizing all areas of the school grounds!
- Our friends from Miyoshi, Japan arrived Wednesday evening. I was able to show them around Columbus on Thursday and will be taking the leaders on a tour of Indianapolis this Sunday. I have really enjoyed this experience!
- Passions for 3rd-6th grade students start next Friday!
- This past Wednesday we counted how many cars came through the car line. Between 7:30-7:48 a.m. 95 cars dropped off students for school. Between 2:45-3:00 p.m. 57 cars picked up students to go home. This is a large number of vehicles. While the line may feel long, we are moving people through it effectively. Please be ready to pull up and depart swiftly. Go team!
- School Pictures are next Tuesday.
- Registration for Girls on the Run and Trailblazers is still open. See the attached flyer for details.
Have a great weekend!
Couldn't make it to the PTO Mix & Mingle last night? Here's a quick review:
Don't be afraid, it's just an email...
PTO email is a great NO PRESSURE way to learn about opportunities to help out so you are able to jump in where you can, if you can, in whatever capacity you can. If you don't have the time or resources to participate in one opportunity simply DELETE the email and maybe the next opportunity will be one you can get involved with. We LOVE our parent volunteers and couldn't pull off all of the fun stuff we do without you so if you aren't currently on the PTO email list but would like to change that, send us your request to be added to firstname.lastname@example.org!
