Issue 19 | May 12, 2024
We are wrapping up an exciting two weeks and revving up for an exciting two weeks! Our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are all safely home from their school trips. Learning Journeys are happening often! (Thanks to the Green Center and Zoo for their hospitality this week.) Dr. Human has been introduced and welcomed into our community as our next Head of School. Thank you to all the parents who came to our coffee on Wednesday. 

And now we head into the final push of the year - graduation is this week as is Forest Park Adventure for our oldest students. We have learning journeys on the calendar and our students are preparing to perform at our End of Year Party on Thursday, May 23rd (see below for more details). We’re celebrating our teachers this week! Please encourage your children to write cards and notes to their teachers - these are always a treasure to our team. 
Exciting times can be challenging for students. Please help your kids by maintaining their sleep schedules, eating healthy meals and reminding them that these final weeks of school are for fun AND learning. Happy Mother’s Day to our moms. And, as always, thank you for your support of our school during this big year.
