Newsletter Update

Dear Parents,

After much discussion, the teachers and the administration have decided to move away from the newsletter and concentrate on delivering important information through the website. Our goal is to use the website more efficiently by instituting the following:

  • We will begin to work with the web designer to increase the webpage speed
  • Pictures will be selected for panels that will highlight elements of the curriculum, and the pictures will be updated every Monday
  • The calendar will be updated regularly
  • Articles of interest to parents will be posted
  • Campus events that are geared toward families will be highlighted
  • Staff reports on workshops and conferences will be posted
  • A link to the Early Childhood Science Technology Engineering and Math (ECSTEM) Conference will be added

These are the first steps we will be implementing, so stay tuned for a more robust and informative web page.
