Snack time and lunch time in our division are wonderful opportunities for students to interact with each other and also practice healthy eating.  Please help your children prepare their snacks and lunches so that they have healthy options.  We ask that candy is not appropriate for school. Groups of students from 5th grade and 1st grade have also invited students to be more thoughtful about the use of plastic and packaged items.  

As we get close to the school year, I would like to share with you that all classes will organize appropriate celebrations supporting an appropriate closure for 2017-18.  We did discuss how meaningful actions are more powerful than purchased items to give to students, so you may hear about that from your classes.  I invite you to reflect back on your “Promise” that you made to your child at the beginning of the school year and celebrate your parenting successes!

You are invited to join us on Wednesday, May 23 at 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium, where the Board of Trustees will hold the Annual General Assembly. This is a unique opportunity for all parents and all staff, when the Board of Trustees and the School Director present the latest highlights and data about our school’s achievements and developments. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our school together! Please join us!
