Campus News 08.24.2018

Hi All!

We have had an amazing first full week back at school!  Our students have quickly fallen into routines as they transition within the building, and our Kindergarteners are Leaders as they walk through the halls from place to place.  Classes have built communities as they have established social contracts, met in Morning Meetings, and set personal and class goals for the year.  We are so blessed to have such amazing Stallions on our campus!  Thank you for sharing your children with us!

News from your Sommer Library

Summer Reading Beach Blanket Bingo–please be sure to turn in your Beach Blanket Bingo Sheets to your teacher or the library by August 27th.  Prizes will be distributed in late September.

Birthday Books–Would you like to donate a book to the library in honor of your child’s birthday?  For $15, we will allow your child to choose a brand new book and label it with your child’s name and birthdate.  They will get to check it out first before it gets added to our collection. To sign up, please visit this link.
