Paper Drive

Our annual beginning of the year PAPER DRIVE is in full effect as of yesterday. The class with the MOST points will receive a teacher reward for participating is $150.00 classroom fund. Write your teacher’s name on the paper and send it to the front office. Here is how the points work: White Ream of Paper =3 points

Couple of Important Dates

  • Curriculum Night: August 23rd from 4:30pm-6:30pm. More information to follow, but this is an awesome night to learn more about our math and English curriculum, the day-to-day in classes, homework questions…
  • In recognition of International Grandparents Day, we are inviting all Grandparents to attend lunch with their grandchildren campus on September 7th and 8th. Lunch is open for special guests, not just grandparents. Due to space concerns, we are asking hosting two days and we ask that you sign up based on THE STUDENT’s last name.

Let me know if you are interested in volunteering for Art Masterpiece. I am looking for 1-2 volunteers who can lead an art project once or twice monthly. It is something that the students look forward to.

I am very much looking forward to another wonderful week! Do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions that you may have!
