May, 2017


Dear Parents,


May is almost over and we are saying goodbye to our students and you!. It has been a wonderful year filled with memories to last a lifetime. I would like to thank you for your ongoing support and loyalty throughout the year. I could not offer such a fantastic education to our students without parents and staff that give their all.

Thank you to my PTO president, Cathy Van Matre and the PTO Board  for working hard to raise money from the Silent Auction. Three teachers will be Montessori certified this summer.  Thanks to all who donated, worked and bought items.


Dates to Remember:

May 30-Kindergarten Graduation at 6:30

May 31-Elementary 1 Graduation at 5:30

June 1-Dismissal at 12:00 with NO After Care with a gathering at Cool

Creek Park afterwards


The 8th years enjoyed their culminating field study in Gettysburg and Washington D.C. this year. This followed an immersion week studying the battle and Lincoln and his decisions. While there, they participated in a ghost walk, recited the Gettysburg Address not far from the place where Lincoln delivered it, and presented battle summaries in the appropriate location on the battlefield. In D.C., they visited Lincoln’s Cottage and debated emancipation through the personas of Lincoln’s cabinet members, as well as viewing the Lincoln Memorial and completing a scavenger hunt at the Capitol.


With the end of the year comes some sadness as we say goodbye to families who are leaving. I would like to take this opportunity to wish those students all the best in their new schools.


I appreciate your love and care you have given to us this school year.



Have a fun and safe summer.


Love and God Bless,
