Our Philosophy
Parent Involvement Group
Family Handbook





  Our curriculum is geared toward skill mastery for our students.
The reading program is phonics-based. By using a tiny stair-step
approach we can ensure that your child fully understands the
materials being taught before moving onto the next lesson. Our daily
activities are rich in hands-on activities to enhance their learning
experience.


















  Our teachers come from varied backgrounds including Montessori
(hands-on, independent learning), as well as experience teaching
young students. Our teachers are available to our families.
Teachers greet students and parents daily as they arrive for school.
Because we are a very small school, you will be able to develop a
bond with all of your child's teachers.







             
   




  We are ungraded, which means that there are no report cards.
Students bring home weekly lesson plans detailing their week's work,
current themes and homework assignments. Three conferences
per year and four Progress Reports also keep parents informed of
their students' educational development. By removing the pressure
of grades, our children experience the joy of learning for the sake
of knowledge.
  All of the teachers know your child. Multi-aged groupings and weekly team meetings to coordinate teaching efforts
are our guarantees that each child's need are met.
throughout the year include field trips, holiday activities, Freaky Fridays, family evenings, award ceremonies and
theme days. Monthly calendars will keep you informed. We encourage and welcome all families to participate in these
activities.
