What excitement we are feeling to be back at school. We hope you and your children share in our excitement. We are welcoming seven new teachers to our staff and we look forward to the talents they will be sharing with us. We are also welcoming a large number of new families to our community as they have moved into their new homes. Along with our increasing enrollment, we will be implementing team teaching classrooms as our space becomes more limited. 2014-2015 looks to be one of our best!
There will be a variety of “new” things to look forward to this year. We will be initiating family community building opportunities this year that will include exploring Social Justice causes, open gym activities and parent education evenings. We will move to electronic report cards that include some changes that we hope will reflect your feedback. Please see this newsletter for an update on the report card itself and we will provide you more details in our November newsletter regarding receiving the electronic report card. Our District “Transform” initiative will carry on with our professional development will continuing to focus on excellent instruction while increasing our Project Based Learning approach. Throughout the year I will comment on initiatives taking place in our school.
Ultimately, we are excited! We hope you join us and keep abreast with us as we take our students to new levels of learning this year. We hope to see you for our BBQ and Program Night on September 11.
