Thursday, December 2

Find a printable copy of the December calendar here.

Our kids have been busy, busy preparing special things to share with their families!

We invite all families to our sweet school on Sunday, December 12th as our children share a feast of beautiful ideas. The afternoon will hold so many wonderful things- scenes from Shakespeare, poetry, singing, displays of student work, refreshments, and more!

Not only will you get to enjoy the lovely presentations by our students, there will also have a silent auction to help raise funds for our brand new school! We will have some teacher experience auction items (opportunities for students to do something fun with a specific teacher). We will be posting an online auction link to share with out of town friends/family next week.

If you have not done so already, please RSVP how many will be attending with your family on the “Enrolled Families” Facebook page or email Minda this number ASAP.

Our school service project will be Christmas stockings for the homeless. We invite your family to choose something from the list below to donate towards this project. Students will put together the stockings during our Christmas party. Each student will take home one stocking to give to a homeless person or donate to a shelter of their choice. We will need 50 of each item, but feel free to pick and choose what your child would like to get. Some items may be easier to buy in a package than individually (example- socks). Some items may be cheaper in bulk (example- chapstick in bulk on Amazon). There will be a box in the foyer for all donations from December 1-14. I will post updates on our Enrolled Families Facebook group of the quantities received throughout the 2 weeks so we know what we are low on or when we have enough of a certain item.

Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a pizza lunch that day. Each child will have the option to bring a lunch from home, eat pizza, or even eat gluten free if needed. Please complete this form to let us know your lunch plans that day.

  • Don’t forget to sign up for a parent/teacher conference! Sign up times can be found here. If you missed your appointment or can’t find a time that works for you, please contact your teacher directly.
  • From the Family Handbook: Afternoon pick up is at 3:30 pm. If you are going to be late, please call Mrs. Ciardi before 3:00 pm. As a courtesy to our staff, if a student is not picked up by 10 minutes after the 3:30 pm dismissal the following fee will be billed to their account: $5 for every 5 minutes their ride is late.
