Dear Families,

We hope this note finds you and your families enjoying (as best you can in the midst of a pandemic) the last few days before the start of the 2020-2021 school year. 

We are excited about the new leadership team at Haven and know that they have been working around the clock to make sure the start of the school year is a great one - particularly given the need to start the year in a less than ideal manner. Our exceptional teaching staff returned to the building this past Thursday and are gearing up for the 2020-21 school year with the incredible commitment, creativity, excellence AND heart that make us so proud to be Northstars.

For our new families, welcome! While we ALL wish our new students and their families were experiencing a "normal" start to their time at Haven, we also know that your children are in good hands and your children's teachers will welcome them with (virtual) open arms. 

We will have more information to share in the coming weeks as our PTA continues its focus on equity initiatives - including a virtual book club that will launch very soon! Please look for more information in coming Enews as well as on our website.

In addition, please see information below from the PTA Equity Project (PEP) and PTA Council regarding virtual enrichment programs. Registration for these programs begin tomorrow (8/24). Scholarships are available! 

If you are on Facebook and haven't already, please join us! A link to our Facebook page, as well as links to other helpful resources, can be found in the footer of this email.

On behalf of our PTA executive team, welcome/welcome back to Haven!

Best,
Kristin O'Connor
2020-2021 PTA President
