Welcome to the 2022/2023 school year! Well, we made it through the first few weeks of school, and the children are adjusting well to their new school environment. Goodbyes are getting a little easier for all! What a joy to see our returning students who have moved to the next level as well as the many new families who have joined our academy this year. Thank you, for your continued support and trust. We are committed to providing your children with the best educational opportunities possible and look forward to all this school year has in store for us.
Our teachers have a busy fall planned, so please remember to review lobby displays as well as our school website, so you relate to all that is happening at school. This month we are kicking off the year with our Johnny Appleseed party and parade. Parents are invited to attend from 10-10:30am.
Beginning September 1st, our Links to Learning curriculum will be in full swing. You will start to see evidence of what your child is learning at school in daily Links 2 Home communication with an overview of “What We Learned Today” emailed daily. Learning activities are taking place daily in all age groups. You can expect to receive your child’s “My Fun and Busy Month” folder, sent home at the end of every month. Not all learning ends with a tangible product, and sometimes it’s a learning experience. For this reason, teachers are committed to communicating with you daily, weekly and monthly about the learning that is going on in their classroom. We also like to take pictures, so you can see the steps your child took to learn a particular skill. Alright, enough of me telling you about how we show evidence of learning, I will let the teachers take over from here.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful children!

Resilience contributes to an overall sense of well-being and happiness and helps children to develop strong relationships and find success in school and career.

The purpose of our sick policy is to reduce the spread of illness among our students and to encourage full recuperation of sick children before they return to school. We depend on parents to assist us in maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all of our children.
Children may be sent home if they have any concerning symptoms. Also, a child must be free of all of these symptoms for at least 24 hours before he/she can return to school. These symptoms include:
- A Fever of 100 degrees or more
- Vomiting within the previous 24-hour period
- Diarrhea within the previous 24-hour period
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior and not himself/ herself
- Green runny nose
Following an illness, a child may return to school once he/she has either been seen by a doctor or it has been determined that illness is not contagious. (A doctor’s clearance may be requested.) Please help us keep all of our children healthy by following these rules. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. Thank you for your support!
