February Blog

Thanks to everyone for a successful Enrollment Open House in January. Applications for the first round of decisions closed on February 7 with 75 applications to process before the Admissions Committee meets in early March. During the family interviews one of the most frequent comments we get is how welcoming and friendly our students are to shadows. I know you help our students learn those skills and want you to know what a positive impression they make on prospective families. We will continue to hold weekday open houses once a month for preschool and kindergarten prospects as long as we have capacity. Janet

Patriotic Assembly

Just a reminder that the Patriotic Assembly is coming up the week after our Presidents’ Week break. The title is Go USA and the theme is Healthy Individuals.

The assembly is on Thursday morning. There will be practice times on Tuesday and Wednesdaywhen you will be able to get into the auditorium and work with your class on stage. I will send an email out this week about this, and will have the sign up sheet in the faculty room.

New Drapes

Hopefully, you have noticed the new drapes hanging in the Apple Orchard, Elizabeth Pombo’s room, and the Elementary Science room. Many thanks to Veronica for making this happen.

Elementary teachers, please take a look at the drapes in the Science room and think about whether you would like something like that for your room.

Emergency Cards

A big “thank you” to Helen Herr for creating our first set of emergency cards. These are cards with each student’s medical and emergency information as well as pick up permissions. She has put them in plastic holders that hang on students’ necks. These are kept in the emergency shed and will be invaluable in an emergency. We will use them as a way to check attendance, to be sure of who we can release them to, and to have medical information at hand.

These cards are also being created for faculty and staff as well. To make them viable, we will need to get more detailed emergency information from many of you, such as your provider, conditions, and emergency contacts. We will request that at some point this spring.
