My gratitude goes out to all parents for giving us the joy of working with your children!
Morning transitions - getting to school with the best of possibilities
Mornings are very important for children as they get ready for a day of learning and social interactions. Arriving to school on time is crucial in supporting positive transitions and demonstrating respect towards the class community. Teachers are ready to receive children at 7:45, welcome them, interact and connect. Thank you for helping your child arrive on time. We would also like to remind you that the car rider gate opens at 7:30 a.m. There are adults on duty who greet all children. For grades PK and K adults walk children to their classroom and it is common for Ms. Tanya to be at the gate to receive children and provide support as needed. Please use this gate to drop off all students in grade PK-5.
Inclusion in our school
We are grateful to learn in a community where students differences are appreciated. In Elementary, we serve students with a variety of needs ranging from mild to intense. This is a true privilege for us and also a big responsibility, one that we attend to with great care under the direction of our learning support program. Our belief that every child has potential guides our work, and students who display more “typical development” positively interact with their peers whose learning journeys are different. The story of each child in our school is beautiful, and we want to thank each of you for contributing to make this happen.
Yearbook photos this week
Please send your child in full dress code. Elementary student photos will be taken on Tuesday November 7 and Thursday November 9 this week.
