A Note from Ms. Davis

Dear Families,


Happy New Year!


We have such an exciting event next week and I hope you'll make every effort to attend! Please join us for our Project Based Learning (PBL) Showcase. All across the school, PreK through 3rd graders have been studying various topics to help them answer essential questions. The kids are so excited to talk to you about their learning journey! Make sure you stop at the entrance doors and pick up a Scavenger Hunt card - there will be prizes! Click on the link below to learn more about PBL.


During the Showcase, families and friends will visit each grade level's exhibit and talk to the students! They are in various stages of the process - and they want to share with you what they've done and what their future plans are. Look for posted questions that you can ask students to get them talking. Your students will need to stay with their class until their teachers release them to visit other exhibits. Please plan to be here!


Being at school is so important! If your child needs to be out, please let us know! There are several ways to make up missed work. Please call or email - don't just ignore this thoughtful gesture because we worry about them when they are not in class!


Please let me know if there is any way I can assist you and your family.


Warm regards,


Cindy Davis,

Principal
