As you must know, we will be undergoing construction for the next year, at least. The construction will be in 5 phases, beginning this summer. We are encouraging everyone to be very flexible during this time. As much as we, as adults, hate disruption of our working space or materials, children are usually quite resilient. These are the times the students will remember!
Once we, as a faculty, have finished examining the large map outlining the construction phases, I will put it in the foyer for parents to see. In the meantime, I will post a small map on one of the boards across from the Office. As is customary for school construction, certain parts of the building will need to be emptied for a part of the year, refurbishing will take place, and then the classes will move back.
It's spring again! We can always tell, because the writing on the bathroom walls begins. Usually our fourth graders begin to feel their oats about this time of year. Actually, there are probably some hormones beginning to inhabit their little bodies, too! We have had several autographs in the bathroom.....some hearts...with names. This can be hurtful to some children. If you have a fourth grader, I would encourage a little conversation about our responsibility to have pride in our school...all parts of it!
Thank you for your support. We are all beginning to develop separation anxiety....as the end of the year approaches.
