A Few Words From Our Principal

Hello everyone!


I hope you are enjoying the long weekend! 


As you already know, Presentations of Learning (POLs) are underway and the excitement (and some nervousness) is in the air!  I am so proud of each of our students' accomplishments making these presentations. 


Enjoy your week!

Tyler's Two Cents

Happy Memorial Day weekend to everyone!


Little known fact: Memorial Day started as a tradition from the Civil War days as a way for soldiers to pay tribute to fallen brothers.


I hope that everyone has a wonderful extended weekend with their families in order to refresh and finish the year strong.

This program is for students entering grades K-6 who want to engage in hands-on, problem solving mathematics. Students will work independently and collaboratively, combining conceptual understanding with basic skills to solve problems and to think critically. This constructivist, activities-based approach to mathematics is enriching, motivating, fun, and challenging. Many other courses focusing on reading, writing, science, and social studies are also offered.
