Thinking about Next Year

Dear Parents,

Let's start Thinking About Next Year!

Each year, we begin planning next year's classes. Often, parents like to share specific information about their child's learning style or optimum classroom environment.

We have placed a PARENT INPUT FORM on our website now through February 5th. We extended the submission window by one week. If you have information you would like to share with us, please do so!

Just a reminder - we do not accept names for specific teachers.

Thank you!
