Hi Everyone,


We hope everyone has enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and warm weather this weekend! It was such a pleasure to welcome in the spring weather.


Moving into this week, we look forward to connecting with all of our students online. Last week, we spent time popping into classrooms and really loved seeing the strong student participation and engagement. It is so exciting to see students in virtual learning mode. Teachers are working hard to find creative ways to communicate with students and provide rich learning experiences. Our school goal is to reach every student and family so please let us know what we can do to make that most successful for your child. We really want to emphasis how important it is for us to hear from you. You can use our Open Door Padlet link below, email us or call us anytime.


We hope you all found a way to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend!


As always, our virtual door is always open.
