Summer seemed to fly by but we had such a great summer with our camps and field trips. Those camps are typically full all summer long so next year if your student wants to participate make sure to sign up as soon as we post registration info. Check out our Facebook page to see photos of the many fun places the kids visited.
Have you noticed that the leaves are starting to change colors already? This means autumn is on its way and our new school year is in full swing. This week we held our parent orientation and if you were unable to attend please feel free to email your student’s teacher for information. Also, our teachers will frequently be posting to their ‘UPDATES’ page so make sure to check those pages often.
One of the students’ favorite part of the week is their Friday electives and this year’s Q1 electives include mountain biking, computer programming and metal working at our local DIY Cave. The kids had such a blast last year working with welding tools and table saws that continued partnership with DIY Cave was requested by the students. Other popular activities are our after school clubs. This quarter we will have a Chinese Language Club, Wolf Pack Running Club, Honor Choir and 4-H Cloverbuds.
If you are familiar with our website you may have noticed that our calendar has changed. We’ve started to work with GAFE – Google Apps for Education, and our new calendar is a Google calendar. If you have a Gmail calendar you can sync your calendar with ours or you may add only the events you want by clicking on that particular event’s link. Let us know what you think of the calendar. Next week we’ll begin our hot lunch program so make sure to click the order link on the right side of our page to see what’s on the menu and to place your student’s order.
Lastly, as always we are very appreciative of our families, students and teachers and we wouldn’t be as successful as we are without our volunteers. We have plenty of volunteer opportunities so please contact us to find out how you can assist.
We look forward to another amazing year and please feel free to stop in and say hi at anytime. If you aren’t a part of our school we encourage you to stop by the office and request a tour of our beautiful campus!
