Our Learning Community...
Thursday night's Spring Showcase of Learning was an incredible success! Seeing so many examples of student work displayed across classrooms was a wonderful way to reflect on all that has been achieved this school year. We loved watching families participate in IMPACT rotations and walk around the Art Gallery in the library. It is always so special to see the pride our scholars have while sharing their accomplishments with their families. We hope all who attended had an amazing time!
Enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year has started! If your child is currently enrolled you are all set. If you have a child that will be starting Kindergarten (and was not in our UTK) you can start the enrollment process now! Completing the new student enrollment process avoids the busy rush in August before school starts and helps us better plan our staff and classroom configurations.
If you meet new families that move into the neighborhood over the summer, let them know they can start the enrollment process online and our office will reach out to them when we reopen in August. More information and links can be found below.
