NOTES


This has been an incredible first week back to school, which culminated in a Bagel & Coffee Morning! I’m so grateful for the many individuals who stopped in for a treat and to say hello; and especially to those who came willing to don oven mitts, slice dozens of bagels, pick up supplies; or who brought goodies of their own to share. If you missed this morning, we will continue to host coffee mornings every Friday from drop off until 9:30am. Many thanks to Whole Foods for supplying us with bagels, cream cheese, jam, and apple cider; Choices Market for the gluten-free bagels; and Waves for the coffee and tea.

Check out our bulletin board, outside the Music Room for opportunities to join clubs, parents groups, and volunteer throughout our school.

Have a fantiastic weekend everyone! Well done!
Laura
