A Note From Our Principal

Fall is in full swing and our students are enjoying the extra outdoor time, nature walks and seasonal curriculum activities. Last month our School-Age program kicked off another great year, and we are thrilled to have our older students with us at the beginning and end of each day. We will begin planning for our annual holiday giving community support initiative soon, so stay tuned for more information! As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Ms. Mila, Principal

Ms. Brittany, Assistant Principal
