Principal's Notes and Highlights

Happy Friday!

You might wonder why I have a photo of Mrs. Netser and John Cho. A better question, and my regret, is why I'm not also in this selfie. If you've read the local newspaper lately, you have seen that John Cho (Harold and Kumar and American Pie) is starring in a film that is set in Columbus. Earlier this week, they were filming next door at the Miller House and Mrs. Netser begged me to go with her. I chickened out and this was the result. So I tip my hat to Mrs. Netser for meeting someone famous. I'll just have to wait until another star decides to film a movie in Columbus. I'm sure that will happen soon...

We survived another Husky Hideaway! It was hot, but no rain! Click the button below for photos from the trip. I'll be adding more photos as we collect them. Thanks for sharing your awesome kids with us!

Calling Parent Volunteers

Have you considered working with students in a small group? Our classrooms would welcome parent or community volunteers who are willing to work with students in a 1:1 or small group station! This allows our teachers an opportunity to work with students on a more individual basis, thus meeting your student's needs. If interested, we just need you to fill out a background check and let your student's teacher know. Here is a picture of Mrs. Pickup working with first grade students!
