End of Year Family Letter

Dear Families,

These past weeks have been packed with exciting school activities, including our Apex Run, HSC Family Picnic, Volunteer Brunch and Field Day!  It has been so much fun having these events on campus and rebuilding our wonderful school community.  A huge thank you to our HSC, especially Diana Muttalif, Yathuna Thamotharam, and Lesa Pfeffer, for continuing to organize these events.  We appreciate all of the family support and feel so lucky to have this community.

Many of you have reached out regarding our school safety plan and the training teachers receive so they are ready in the event of an emergency.  I’ve attached our school safety plan, which is also available online, which outlines how we prepare for emergencies.  Some links are internal to protect staff and students. All staff also receive yearly training provided by MHPD.  We appreciate the many conversations around the park-side fence and want to let everyone know that our superintendent is addressing these concerns with the city.  We hope to have an answer or resolution to this concern in the Fall.

As you plan for the summer, we want to send a friendly reminder that all online programs are still available for students to practice.  Please read the attached directions. Your student will also receive a summer review packet along with a parent manual that we are encouraging all students to complete.  Students who turn in a completed packet the first week of the 2022-23 school year will be invited to a special school-wide assembly!

Finally, we are in the process of updating supply lists for the next school year.  We will add these to our school website on July 15th for all of the eager shoppers! 

If we don’t have a chance to say goodbye face to face tomorrow, Mrs. Green and I both want to wish you all a restful summer.  We are so appreciative of your support and how you trust us with your children each day.  Looking forward to next year!
