If you pass by Center in the coming days, you'll see lots of happenings around the school grounds. The paving of our playground began this morning, so we'll have a beautiful new play area for our students in August. The back stairs are being repaired as well as areas on the top of the esplanade. Inside, we continue to move classrooms; and the maintenance crew is working tirelessly to clean and organize spaces. Teachers are beginning to drop in to set up classrooms and to work on curriculum for the coming year. I'm placing 24 new students across all grade levels as well as placing our new friends from Blueberry Hill. We're closely monitoring our full day kindergarten numbers and I've posted an anticipatedopening for a third full day section. The final decision about the section will be made next week. Somehow it doesn't feel like summer has slowed us down!!
As August approaches, I wish you lots of family time during the last weeks of summer. I hope you've enjoyed reading The One and Only Ivan. If you still need a copy of the novel, please stop by the school office, but send me an email first so I can make sure to meet you at the entrance.
Class lists will be posted on teachers' websites, the Powerschool portal, and on the library windows on Friday, August 21st. Class supply lists for each grade level are on the teachers' websites. Note that grade level have similar lists. Visit the school website often for additional information.
Please email me with any questions.
