Weekly Recap

I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Justina and all staff who contributed to preparing and executing our DI Kinder Information Night. We had a nice turn out of parents and there is a ton of enthusiasm from our incoming families. Go Team Flowery!


I'm looking forward to our writing training on Monday with Kevin Coates! Morning refreshments and lunch from Mary's will be provided. The training will begin promptly at 8:30 in the Falcon's Nest.


Please send home the February RAP in Monday folders. Thank you!

We will have to utilize the lab to complete the assessments. I will notify individual teachers if your lab time is impacted. Thanks for your flexibility!


The Copperfields Book Fair is coming to Flowery the week of parent conferences. We are excited to bring a new book vendor to Flowery. Special thanks to Gayleen Brown for coordinating the event! More details to come as we get closer.

FLOWERY SCHOOL

Flowery is a Spanish/English dual immersion school, providing all students with the opportunity to become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. Begun in 1998 with one kindergarten class and a $1,000,000 federal grant, dual immersion now spans grades K-5 at Flowery and grades 6-8 at Adele Harrison Middle School. We are proud to offer this high quality program of choice for Sonoma County families, and are committed to educating all children for success in a global society.
