In the spirit of the holidays, we would like to highlight the power of positive words.  We invite you to join our Gift of Words campaign which will run through December 20.  At school, students will be invited to use positive messages and then post these in our elementary tree which we envision being filled with gifts of words.  At home, catch your children doing things that are commendable and slip them little notes of appreciation with drawings for little ones and specific written comments for older ones.  Celebrate your children for things like putting their things away, giving you a hug spontaneously, helping to bring in groceries, using kind words with others, putting on their seat belts, using manners at the table, smiling at grandparents, remembering to brush their teeth, reading daily, bringing joy to your family… so many celebratory possibilities.  

So, Let’s light up this season with kindness!

Celebrate our host city on Wednesday, December 6 (no school) and please remember that we have a half-day for professional development on Thursday, December 7.  We will have a normal schedule on Friday, December 7.

Here are the schedules for the PK - 2nd grade concerts:

  • PreK and Kinder concert is Friday, December 15th at 9:30am
  • Grade 1 and Grade 2 concert is on Thursday, December 14th at 2:00pm.
