Kudos to Ms. Lori for coordinating our annual state-required standardized testing. Her vision of a better way to administer the tests came to fruition this year with beautiful results. Meanwhile, many thanks to Ms. Jill who once again coordinated a complicated conference schedule on behalf of us all. Both Lori and Jill have a knack for not only pulling off these hugely challenging schedules, but also making it pleasant with treats and goodies along the way! Well done, Ms. Judith and Ms. Leah who ran three great Optional Care days against the backdrop of difficult weather. Great job, Mr. Scott, for the very successful Open House yesterday. Interest in our school is record-breaking and we appreciate everyone helping to spread the word.
THANK YOU to all of the parents and host parents who participated in Family Conferences last week. February conferences are always invaluable and productive in aligning goals and processes to reach those goals. Our Professional Team is deeply appreciative of the ongoing commitment of our families to work collaboratively.
