The classrooms are buzzing with hard working children who returned from vacation energized!
We are looking forward to sharing some of the work generated recently during the
All-School Study of North America. Please save the date - January 27th. We will welcome parents/guardians and friends to visit our classrooms from 9-9:30am. Plan to come in before then for a coffee/tea bar to enjoy time together as the children set up their classrooms.
Meanwhile, our Upper Elementary students are preparing for an
Upper Elementary Dance
scheduled for February 3rd from 6-8pm. This is being organized by students with supervision by Ms. Colleen, our Lead Teacher in the Zion Room. More details to follow.
Thank you(!) to Hind and Intisar for once again spoiling us with an incredible spread of delicious and beautiful food at this month's Professional Development/Staff Planning Day earlier this week. Your special delivery was so appreciated by staff - it kept us well-fed, alert, and full of great energy throughout the afternoon.
Please note that today we are sending home the Intent to Return Form. We ask that you complete and return this form which asks for information about your plans for your child/children for next year. The form is due back to us by or before January 27th so that we can have a clear sense of the number of openings we will have to offer in our upcoming Lottery. If you have any questions, please contact Meryl by email or phone.
Last night, we held our first of four Lottery 2017 Information Sessions. 40 adults joined us to learn more about our school. Special thanks to Amanda Gerardi for being a Parent Ambassador, and to Ms. Susanne for helping to organize our Lottery. An additional thanks to so many of you who shared food, flowers, plates and such so that we were able to give a warm welcome to our prospective families.
