Thanks to all the volunteers who made the special events for our K-8 Halloween events happen.

It was terrific to see all the bustle of students in classrooms, parent orientations and parent volunteers on campus this week.  I saw a lot of reconnecting with old and new peers, lots of smiles, and relaxed interactions from parents, students, and teachers. We can expect some understandable adjustments, emotional ups, and downs as students adjust to coming back to school, especially when it is a new site for many of our students but as the weeks unfold and we work together for the good of the students, these adjustments will lessen.

If you are new to our Charter...

And now the 2020-21 school year has ended.  The summer has begun and it appears that we can continue to step into normal routines. May you all stay safe and healthy and may you enjoy plenty of joyful days with family and friends doing activities that rejuvenate you.
