Words can't express how excited we are to be starting an in-person school year with you.
I am also a Creative City parent and this has been a looooong 18 months for my three children (ages 6, 9, and 11). As we prepare to return to in-person learning, I know that my kids will benefit from lots of opportunities to reconnect with the school community and to ease back into the idea of in-person school. We have a busy week planned with several opportunities for you and your family!

"Cozy Opening" Grades K & 1 Sat 8/28, noon - 2:15pm
We are taking extra care with our youngest students who may need a little extra time to ease into the school year. Sign up for a one-hour block for your Kindergartener or First Grader to get to know their classroom, meet their teacher and a small group of classmates, and get ready for Monday. We will also hold parent orientations during this time. Please stay for the full hour if at all possible - and then stay for the fun at our Back to School BBQ afterwards! Masks required!
