A Note From Our Principal

We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities and classroom celebrations last month. Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween costumes and fall attire is one of the highlights of the year for us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of these special occasions! This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with others. Though we cannot hold our normal Thanksgiving community meal this year we have many special activities planned for our students and are looking forward to sharing photos with you all on Links 2 Home. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Ms. Mila, Principal

Ms. Brittany, Assistant Principal

Thanksgiving Celebrations

Illness Policy Reminder

Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.


Fall Cubby Refresh

It’s finally starting to get cooler and we are planning extra outdoor time to take full advantage of the fall season. Please make sure your child has a weather appropriate change of clothes in their cubby and outerwear when applicable.
