  • Principal's Message

    Thank you to everyone involved in helping to make Parent Teacher Conferences such a positive experience. Our teachers work hard toward meeting each child's learning needs, and having the opportunity to share your child's current academic performance and goals helps them to craft instruction for the future. Thank you for your dedication and taking the time to engage in this conversation with our teachers. A huge thank you to all of the parents who organized meals, made dinner, and cleaned up for our staff during conferences! Your culinary gifts helped all of us get through those long days.

     As we enter the holiday season, I need to give you a reminder about vacations, enrollment and homework while gone. If you plan to be gone, please make sure to contact either our office or your child's teacher. Absences that extend beyond 10 school days means that your child will be dropped from our enrollment. We don't want that to happen. Sometimes parents ask teachers for them to send school work home to be completed while on vacation. Please know that our teachers are valuable professionals and there is no way to truly replace missed instruction. There are, however, some potential opportunities for strengthening the home-school connection. You can check with your teacher for ideas on special projects or or other ideas that can support your child's learning while on vacation. Just keep in mind that there may not be a way to make up for missed instruction and classwork. Thank you for your understanding. 

    Thank you,

    Pamela Van Der Wolf
