Back to School

We are excitedly looking forward to the start of a new school year. With the improvements to the school, when you walk on campus, you might wonder if you are at the right place! We have a few announcements for back to school so that you don't miss anything.

First, we have created a back to school supply wish list. In an effort to make sure all of our students and teachers have access to the supplies they need, donations will be divide amongst all classrooms. There is a sign-up link in the right hand column of this page which will take you to this list.

Second, Kindergarten parents have a few events coming up soon. There is a playdate August 12th from 10 am-12 pm. Kindergarten orientation will be August 18th at 2 pm. There will also be a Kindergarten potluck August 19th at 11:30 am.

Finally, the first day of school is August 21st. It is a minimum day with classes K-6 starting at 8:30 am and ending at 2:05 pm. An update bell schedule may be found here: There will also be a welcome back coffee in the multi-purpose room at 8:30 am on the first day. Come mingle with other parents and enjoy some coffee and goodies. Donations of treats are welcome; just bring them with you!
