Spread Some Love


It's hard to believe that we’re nearing the end of the month. As we dive headfirst into the end of the year, let’s all take time to prioritize self-care and wellness. We’ve spent a good deal of time in our Trauma Responsive Schools sessions thinking about what this looks like on an individual level and for our students.


We will also look to share this learning and find opportunities to connect with our parents and families. This was a great week to experience the joys of warm weather and sunshine! Be sure to take time this weekend and for the next few weeks to spread that warmth and sunshine around!!!

Comfort with a full Reopening Next Year

We are also hosting a community event designed to provide information and context to what school is like in person. Our target audience is the over 200 families that declined an in-person seat this year and any other parent who would like to feel more confident in our reopening for next year. We will have parents that are doctors, teachers, and students prepared to speak to our community members about their experiences in person in an attempt to prepare our families for a full reopening in August. Please save the date, June 15, 6pm.
