A Note From Our Principal,
Thank you all for helping our school celebrate Earth Day last month. Celebrating Earth Day as a community provides our teachers with many opportunities to relate science, math and literacy concepts to everyday life. As we move into May, we are getting our classrooms ready for a summer of additional enrichment for our preschool students and summer camp for our school-age students. We can’t wait to spend summer with you and your children and hope you’ll join us at the family activities we have planned this month!
