Dear S2 Parents,
 
I hope you all enjoyed the summer break. It has been a pleasure to welcome you and your children back for what promises to be another great year of growth and learning at School in the Square. With fully enrolled 6th, 7th and 8th grades, we now have over 300 students! We also hired over 20 new staff members this year to broaden our instructional team, improve operations, increase leadership capacities and strengthen our social emotional team. Throughout the summer the whole staff worked together to prepare for the coming year, by solidifying a uniform approach to teaching and by emphasizing the importance of S2’s school culture that always puts relationships first. Though we are growing, the heart of our school remains in place, stronger than ever.
 
Please spend some time on our website to get to know our newest staff members, especially those who will be working directly with your children as their Prime Time and subject matter teachers or counselors. As always, make a habit of checking the Parent Corner on our website. We update this page regularly with important information, flyers and notices, dates for upcoming Coffee & Conversation events, and other useful resources. Also, please subscribe to our Facebook Page and remember to like us!
 
Finally, September will be a busy month. We are planning Back to School Nights for September 26th and 27th, so please save those dates. It was a pleasure seeing and meeting many of you during orientation, I look forward to hosting you again at these upcoming events.
 
Your principal,
 
-Carrie Amon

UNIFORMS

As a reminder, students must wear their school uniforms every day. Acceptable shirts include collared S2 shirts in red, gray or navy blue. Please note that S2 tee shirts are not allowed . For bottoms, students may wear gray or khaki shorts, skirts or pants. They must wear closed-toed shoes (no sandals), preferably sneakers.

Please see HERE for full details about our uniform policy and to purchase additional clothing.
BTS Night Bottles
WATER BOTTLES

It is hot, and it is important that students stayed hydrated. To help in this effort, please send your child to school with a water bottle that they can refill and carry with them throughout the day. This will also help in our efforts to cut down on the excessive use of plastic cups and will allow your student to drink water without needing to leave their classroom.

Thank you!
