5/15/20 Announcement

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya Angelou 

It’s hard to believe that we have just finished week 5 of distance learning. Our staff continues to work hard to meet the evolving needs of students and families.  While the circumstances for some families have remained stable, the realities of others continue to change.  We are here to help and, as always, we value your support and feedback.  As we approach the end of this school year, we are beginning the process of reimagining school in the fall.  Although there is much still unknown moving forward, we are planning different options of how we will return to school.  An important part of the process is hearing from our families.  In the coming weeks, we will reach out for your input.  We believe in the connectedness of our community and we are confident that, together, we will continue to provide exceptional learning experiences for our students.


Forecasting for next year

Thank you to all the families that have completed the forecasting form for next year. Here is the link if you have not completed this important part of planning for next year.

Cards and Magnets

Each year one art project that your child has made is photographed and available to purchase as note cards and/or magnets. They are a wonderful keepsake or gift.

This year we are hoping to identify which families are interested in purchasing cards and/or magnets to help streamline the project.

Magnets $3.00 each – Finished size 2-2.6” x 3.3-4.8”. (Depends on art ratio)
Cards $2.00 each – Card size 4.25” x 5.5” with envelope

Examples from previous years are included in the Google Form.

If you are interested please fill out the brief google form below so that we make sure we have your child’s artwork photographed.

If you have any questions, please email

Thank you,

The Cards & Magnets Team
