Thank you so much for your positive messages and energy on Back to School Night! It was lovely to meet so many of you, and the classrooms were bustling with information and participation from parents. We really appreciate your support and collaboration around building a great school community for our students!

Speaking of building school community...there are many collaborators in the school environment who help connect the pieces and support students when needs arise. This year, we have additional counseling resources for individual needs, teacher and student education, classroom support, and crisis management when necessary. If you feel that your student can benefit from checking in with a school counselor, please notify their grade level guidance advisor, and they will be referred appropriately.

The Administrative team had the opportunity to sit down with our new SROs this week, Chris Moore and Brad Young, and discuss norms and protocols for how we’re going to work together, and clarify roles and responsibilities. Building positive relationship with support providers is important, so if we need to do hard work together, we are starting with a healthy foundation.
