I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer break. My vacation ended yesterday when we reopened the school office. However, I did spend overdue time with my family, and we even managed a few short trips.
The office is now open if you need to turn in enrollment packets, update student records, or just say hi.
We will be welcoming new staff members this year, as we bid farewell to Marianne Bordier (who has retired) and Erin Saporta (who has moved on to be a coordinator at a middle school). Our hiring committee has been working hard all summer interviewing teacher candidates and viewing lessons, and soon I’ll be able to tell you more about our new staff members. They are excited to be joining us, and we’re happy to have found them.
Our first big school event of the new year is our traditional “Prep and Polish Day,” which is held on the Friday before the first week of school. While the first day of school for our students is Tuesday, August 16, on Friday students and families who come on Friday can help us get the school clean and ready, find out their new class assignments, and have a chance to sign up and get involved with our school through the many opportunities offered for parents to volunteer.
There’s a lot more to talk about – but I need to save something for the next Summer Focus. Enjoy your summer – and don't forget to bring a book!
Mr. Steve Gediman, Principal
