Dear Families,


The Scholastic Book Fair was this past week, and as always, it was a huge success! Our 5th-grade students run the book fair, and they do a fantastic job. Some adults have asked about adult books and/or items like cookbooks being added to the book fair in the fall. This is something we will talk to Scholastic about to see if it is possible.


This past week we started interviewing for our new 0.5 Guidance Counselor position, and our K-5 music position. Next week we will start interviewing for the two teaching positions we have open. We had an amazingly deep pool of candidates for all three positions, and the interviews we have done so far have been fabulous.  I am very excited about the candidates we have and have full confidence that we will find talented people to work with your students next year.


This summer, we will be running summer school. Summer school will run the following weeks:

July 5 – July 7  (W – F)

July 10 – July 13 (M – TH)

July 17 – July 20 (M – TH)

July 24 – July 27  (M –TH)

Summer school will start at 8 am each day, and end at noon. Students will be fed breakfast and lunch each day. Look for more information coming home about registration!


Here are some important dates coming up:

  • Parent Teacher Conferences April 13th & 14th – Student dismissal at 11 am both days
  • Foodbank Fruit and Veggie April 21st
  • April Vacation April 24th – 28th


Have a wonderful weekend.
