A Letter From our Principal:

I hope this newsletter finds you well, and you are all enjoying the warmer weather and longer daylight hours.  As the school year comes to an end and we start gearing towards the summer months, there will be many exciting things to come!  The Water Park will be opening May 31st,  and there will be many special visitors on campus for our children during the summer months.  Your activity fee, that you pay this time each year, goes to cover these special visitors like magicians, artists, story tellers etc. as well as purchasing new enhancement items for your classrooms. 

Current Kindergarten through 5th grade students will have an opportunity to register for summer camp starting on April 11th.  Please remember that summer camp is limited to a first come/ first serve basis, and spaces fill up fast.  The informational packets will be sent home with current students first, and we will then open registrations to outside families.    

As we move forward in the months ahead, please ensure that you have pre-registered for  your child’s classroom next school year.  We have limited openings in these classrooms, so time is of the essence. We look forward to some great teacher planning sessions over the summer months for a great Back to School transition in August, and can’t wait to show you some of the new components that we will be implementing during the next school year!  

As life begins to speed up over the next few months with school ending, graduations, field days, summer vacations and summer camps, please embrace these April showers and take a moment to dance in the rain!     

Tiffany Batts, Principal
