Tips for a successful conference

School Improvement Group


Last year we formed a group designed to focus on specific school needs and come up with plans to address those needs. We currently have room for an additional 2-3 new members. We will meet via Zoom approximately 1-2 times per month for 1 hour. Days and times will be set based on the group availability.  Click the link below to be considered for this group. Thanks!

School Improvement Interest


"The biggest threat to a child's sense of safety is an out-of-control adult. The key to safety is a conscious, mindful adult."

Conscious Discipline starts with the adult. Over the next few newsletters I will link mini webinars that our teachers will be viewing as well. We hope you find something helpful in each one!

 Imagination Library


"Developing literacy begins at birth. By the age of three, a child’s brain is already 80% developed, and, by the time a child enters kindergarten, they must already know thousands of words in order to succeed in the classroom⁽¹⁾. Reading aloud to a child and giving them access to books is the best way to ensure they are prepared to enter kindergarten.

Through our partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, we are working to send every child in Ohio from birth to age five a new book each month. Research has shown that a child with 25 books in their home complete an average of two additional years of schooling compared to their peers without books in their home⁽²⁾. Our goal is that every kindergartener begins school with 60 books in their home."
