"Seven things every child needs to hear: I love you. I’m proud of you. I’m sorry. I forgive you. I’m listening. This is your responsibility. You have what it takes to succeed." —Sherrie Campbell, PhD
ATTENTION Pre-K and KG parents: Please bring your child's supplies on the day of the orientation. There is no need to identify each and every item with your child’s name. You can simply place the items in a bag and write your child’s name on the outside of the bag.
