Welcome back! I can't believe the first day of school is approaching! I am so excited to see our students on Wednesday. It is sure to be a great day.
Before that, our staff reports tomorrow for two days of meetings and professional development designed to ensure we are ready to go on Wednesday.
Thank you to our custodians and our secretarial staff for their hard work throughout the summer. The school is very clean and the floors are sparkling! Our secretaries worked some days this summer to learn about ASPEN, our new student information system and we also are adopting Munis, our new purchasing program. Both programs will raise our efficiency and allow for the capacity to do more tasks, more easily. Thank you to all of you.
I want to thank Minta Hissong and our student workers, also, who helped weed, clean and prepare the courtyard for school. It looks great!
I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful summer. The weather was great and hopefully will continue for us as we settle in to new routines.
Please review the first day packet that will go home with your student. There is a lot of important information for you to see. I am happy to let you know that our new elementary handbook will soon be ready. The three elementary principals collaborated on this project. It was a great opportunity to align and ensure consistency. In the meantime, please refer to the handbook on our website until you receive the new version.
Thank you for all of your support! See you soon.
