When we return from break, the NEASC Accreditation Team will be arriving for our re-accreditation site visit (April 24-27).  Our staff has been working hard for over a year now to prepare for our site visit by engaging in a very meticulous self-study process.  This process involved the gathering of data, analysis, and creation of reports of our school, as seen through the lens of the NEASC accreditation standards.  It is time to share our findings with them in person.  

We look forward to welcoming the NEASC team to our school community, and introducing them to our students, faculty, and families during their 4 day stay.  It is great to be a part of a process that looks to celebrate our accomplishments and prepares us for future growth and continued improvement.   Thank you for all your support and feedback!  

I hope that you all have a wonderfully restful and relaxing April vacation!  Our school doors will reopen (a bit wider than usual) on the 25th as we welcome the seven members of our visiting NEASC team!  Then it will be full steam ahead with IOWA testing, Teacher Appreciation Week, our Musical Spectacular, and all of our end of school year activities!  Buckle up for a wild, fast paced finish and stay well informed by reading teacher web pages, visiting our school website and frequenting our school Facebook page.  There are many moving pieces as we finalize plans for the end of the school year and we appreciate your assistance and atte ndance as much as possible.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers for our school.
Have a great break!
