Welcome to the new school year!
Posted 08/21/2017 09:54AM

It's been a busy summer on campus, but we're all eager to welcome our new and returning families for the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year! While each unit has its own welcome activities, our two school-wide events are coming up. The first day of school is a half day on Tuesday, August 22. That morning, parents on Main Campus can drop by the Gym Lobby for a meet and greet with our new Head of School, Karen Cumberbatch. All families are welcome to our Community Picnic on Sunday, August 27.

Here is a brief note from Karen:

"I hope that everyone has had a restful, productive, and rejuvenating summer. The beginning of the school year is just around the corner, and I am filled with eager anticipation. While the campus is a wonderful place in the summer and I have truly been welcomed and embraced in my short time here, I know that it is with the return of the students, families, and full staff that the School will truly come alive."

Main Campus Parent Coffee, Tuesday, August 22, 8:00 – 10:30 am on the Gym Terrace – all are welcome!

Come meet Karen Cumberbatch, our new Head of School!
