We have changed the format of our New Student Orientation this year. Instead of gathering at the community center for a comparison of the programs, we will have four dates for an orientation and district-wide tours. I will welcome visitors and provide an overview of our school district in the upper campus library. The group will then tour the Open Classroom and the Montessori programs with parent guides. I will then take the group through the Middle School program. This experience should give an overview and inside peek into all our classrooms, and serve to unite us as a K-8 school district. New student registration begins on February 9. Thank you to Valerie Fowler-Daly and Kerry Olivetti for helping to organize the tours of the two programs.
