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 as we spent two weeks driving up to Washington state (with stops in northern California and Oregon).
The office is now open if you need to turn in enrollment packets, update student records, or just say hi.
As regular readers of the Friday Focus know, our Ms. Hoffman accepted an offer in June to transfer to a school close to her home and family. Our hiring committee worked hard all summer interviewing teacher candidates and viewing lessons, and soon I’ll be able to tell you more about our terrific new teacher. She is excited to be joining us, and we’re happy to have found her.
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 15, on Friday, August 11th students and families who come 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 always bring along a good book!
Mr. Steve Gediman, Principal
