IMPORTANT NOTE: We begin school each year with a closed kitchen. This means no student may bring a lunch with anything that needs to be cooked on the stove, toasted, or microwaved until the kitchen has been officially opened for business.

Dear Middle School Parents,

Please check for weekly updates here! We will send an email to let you know when the blog is updated.

In the classroom, we work toward providing each student with an education that is tailored to his or her academic needs, as well as his or her strengths. In doing so, we hope to provide your child with a solid foundation of skills from which to begin their own journey of discovery. We work to provide a stimulating, enriching, supportive environment that will encourage your child to grow academically, emotionally and socially.

Important Dates:

Back to School Parent Night! – Thursday, Sept. 6. 2012 6 p.m. Join us for an evening where we can explain our program, discuss important changes, communicate student expectations and advice for parents. This meeting is mandatory for at least one parent or guardian per family.

Mark your calendars! Our Fall Field Study will be Sept. 17-20 at Camp Colman in Longbranch, Wash. We will be needing 3-4 parent chaperones. Please read the attached information about this trip.
