Dear Parents and Families:

I am excited to announce we will be hosting the Scholastic Book Fair in April!  This event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. As always, all purchases benefit our school.

We will host a preview day for students at school on Friday, April 22nd so they can browse the book selection and create their wishlists. We will then be open for shopping on Monday, April 25th - Thursday, April 28th during your student’s library time. We will also be open to students and families to visit and shop after school on Monday, April 25th - Wednesday, April 27th from 3:45pm - 4:30pm. 

We need parent volunteers to help set up and / or work during the book fair. If you are interested, please email Molly Walsh at

We look forward to seeing you there!

Hey, innovators! We’re looking for students who are risk-takers, thinkers,  curious, persistent, creative, and interdependent. Join us at Innovation Academy for a week of design thinking, inquiry-based learning, and lots and lots of prototyping, where you’ll have tons of fun as we find solutions to the world’s most pressing issues! (Well… from the perspective of an elementary-aged student!) We’ll use the human centered process called Design Thinking to uncover needs, brainstorm ideas, and bring some of those ideas to life!  Check out this link for more information or to register! Registration opened March 14, and space is limited!
