Another fabulous year has come to a close. I know that each of you holds special memories of the days and months your students shared with their friends and teachers. Each student made great strides in their academic achievements, each added to their creative explorations, built stronger friendships, and pushed their limits in physical and social-emotional skills.

I hope that you and your family have enjoyed a fine 3-day weekend; recognizing Memorial Day as a day to remember all who lost their lives while fighting for our country. It was originally known as Decoration Day and began in the years following the Civil War; becoming an official federal holiday in 1971.
This past week was Teacher Appreciation week. Each of the Charter teachers is very unique and special as a person and as a teacher who put his/her heart and soul into their profession. Every day throughout the school year they work with your students to not only learn at their Personal Best but also to be their Personal Best with themselves and with others. Each and every one of them is dedicated to do their best and to be role models in what we are working to instill in your children. Each and every one of them shows a strong passion and commitment to their work. They are flexible and responsive to creative ideas and different ways of thinking and doing things.

The teachers in our programs continue to offer a dynamic balance of classroom academic content and field experiences to enrich your students’ learning. Many of the 8th graders from the QHIA program are heading to Ashland Oregon for the Shakespeare festival with students in the CRHS program. This special collaborative event was organized by CRHS lead teacher Kay Mendoza with Amber Walker from the QHIA program in a supporting role. Next week, students in the Coast Redwood Middle School (CRMS) will be attending their semi-annual four day excursion to Headwaters Outdoor School. And then there was the Earth Day celebration put on by Mountain IS families for the Mountain school classes, and theme-based field trips coming up for Fall Creek, as well as Nature Academy 6th grade students attending Headwaters Outdoor School and the 7-8th grade students heading out to Catalina!
