Happy New Year to each of you and your families!  We are excited to begin 2018 and continue learning with your children.  These next weeks are filled with moments of reflection, understanding our growth and making plans to reach our goals.  It is amazing to watch young minds as they use sophisticated thinking to admire their work, map out next steps and act accordingly.  Your children are such an inspiration for each of us.

Thank you for providing engaging opportunities for them during the break!  We have heard so many awesome stories and what is evident is that your children enjoy the time with you tremendously.  

We have been reminding our students to follow recommendations to keep themselves healthy.  Please help your children to pack healthy snacks, to follow general guidelines when feeling sick (washing hands, protecting mouth when coughing, staying home when ill to get better faster and avoid getting others sick), to be kind to others and to also seek adult help when needed.
