The Rooms are clean, the wax is dry, but the orders....are on stand-by!

Thank you to our fabulous custodial team! Devon, Tammy and Reginald have finished the building and it is ready for you! Be careful about rolling heavy carts across newly dried floors, it takes a few days for them to dry hard.

The secretaries are back! However, their job is to register, and roster all students by the end of next week. That gives them three days after registration. Please remember they are contracted to come in early to complete this job. We will deliver your orders to your classroom when we have time to get them checked in. Thanks for being considerate!

T-shirts for staff have been ordered, we will let you know when they arrive. Hopefully we can give them to everyone for the photo after opening session.

Notes from Dr. Wilson.....

Hope you had a wonderful summer! It's amazing how fast it flies by! Open House will be Tuesday, August 16th this year, from 5-7 PM. Information is going out to parents at registration and also through School Messenger. We will have the same schedule as last year:

5:00-5:30 Meet and Greet in all classrooms

6:30-7:00 Meet and Greet in all classrooms

All staff needs to attend. Specials need to be outside their rooms meeting and greeting families. Facilitators will be with their classroom teachers. All staff without a classroom can be visible in hallways helping to direct families to the classrooms
