From the Principal's Desk

What an incredible first few days of school we had! It was such a wonderful way to begin the school year! Thank you to everyone who helped make the first day of school absolutely fantastic for our Superstars! Our teachers focused on building their classroom communities and getting to know everyone this past week. We are so excited for the school year!

We are looking forward to Back to School Night next week. On August 24th, we will see Kindergarten, 2nd Grade, and 4th Grade Families. On August 25th, we will see 1st Grade, 3rd Grade, and 5th Grade Families. Please see your classroom teacher for more information.

From the Office

We would like to thank Girl Scout Troop 61608 for the incredible Buddy Benches that they have provided us through their Girl Scouts Take Action project. Having a Buddy Bench helps us provide a caring and inclusive environment for our students where they can increase friendships and reduce loneliness while at recess.

We are so grateful!

From the Counselor

From the Counselor:

The beginning of the school year is a great time to establish new routines at home. This can help lower stress for children (and parents/guardians!). Here are some strategies to create a school-year routine. More Information

  1. Create a visual schedule of the day. Click here for some ideas! Morning Routine Checklist, Back to School Schedule Template

  2. Keep all school materials (Backpack, lunch boxes, etc.) in one place to make them easier to find.

  3. Pick out outfits the night before.

  4. Set up a homework time and location.

  5. Make time for connection! (Schedule 10 minutes to read a book together, turn the radio off in the car and chat about the day, eat breakfast together…or whatever works for your family!)
