• Dear Parents,

    With the holiday break approaching quickly, I’d like to give a shout-out to our parents and school community for the support of our school on such a consistent basis. At the 3-5 holiday concert last week I shared with parents many acts of support that have made a direct impact on our students. Examples include the Chair Affair Auction that raises money to support the arts, such as purchasing the Orff musical instruments our students used in both performances this month.  Money from this auction was also used to paint the mural in our play shed last spring and will be used to pay for our artist in residence program that kicks off this January with artist, Courtney Berens, teaching students the elements and principles of art through the use of clay. Another act of support that made that finally made an impact just this past week was the debut of our new playground climbing structure, the Classic Dome. This was a culmination of about 3 years of fundraising from the Wildcat Chase, our spring jog-a-thon. Check out the picture included in this newsletter showing students getting their first try at climbing on this structure. It’s been a big hit and is a really nice addition to our playground.  

    I feel very grateful to work at a school with a tremendous amount of parent and community support, which has a direct correlation to the climate of our school and the success of our students.  Thank you for being an active part of our school community!

    May you all enjoy your friends and family over the upcoming holiday break!
