NEXT WEEK’S NEWS

Our Third Trimester Begins Next Monday

With more teachers and students returning to in-person classes, we will be making some changes to everyone’s class schedules. This schedule may continue to evolve while we work to utilize our in-person time as effectively as possible. 

As usual, we will be employing many Habits of Mind to do this. We will be Thinking Flexibly, Applying Past Knowledge to New Situations, Taking Responsible Risks, Remaining Open to Continuous Learning, and perhaps most importantly Finding Humor.

We are also Listening with Empathy and Understanding and trying our best to honor and balance the different needs and concerns of our community… students, parents and teachers alike. We thank you all for your support.

SUMMER NEWS

There Will Not Be Summer School Offered This Year

Traditionally, this is the time of year that we would be planning our Summer School activities to encourage continuous learning while having fun and getting exercise.

This year, due to space, staffing, and other Covid restraints, we will not be offering that experience. 

It is always a fun time and we look forward to offering it again… just not this summer.
