From the Director
The 2016-17 school year is off to a GREAT start! The students, both new and returning, had a busy first day yesterday, but everyone looked rested and ready for another year of learning. We kicked off our first day with an all-school assembly, and introduced all of our new staff. Students then rotated through various areas of the school and reviewed appropriate procedures and expected behaviors. Carpool was, as expected, a bit sluggish as students (and parents) re-orient to the pick-up process and, in some cases, a new pick-up time and/or location. Thank you for your patience as we get our carpool process going again for the new year. Before you know it, it will be functioning as smoothly and efficiently as always.
New this year . . .
