Principals Pen August 2014
Dear Parents and Families of School #12,
Welcome to another exciting school year. As you are aware, we have relocated to the Jefferson Campus as the South Ave. school building is being completely renovated. Even though we are in a new space, the school will continue to operate with the same high level of expectations and quality instruction.
We also welcome some new staff:
Mr. Timothy Graziano- Assistant Principal Mr. Michael Smith- Art
Patricia Bennet- Music Tammy Taylor Brown- K
Kasey Gillette- 2nd Grade Michelle Francisco- 4th HOLA
Jamie Schenk- K
We had to say good-bye to Mr. Hayward and Mrs. Daly who went to Wilson Foundation and Mrs. Carey who went to School #9. Mrs. Goldstein and Ms. Peirce are no longer with us as well.
We have settled into the new site and are busy making the school ready for all staff, children, and our families. All the rooms have been freshly painted and teachers have prepared the rooms for their students. We have a new Parent Room for your use and enjoyment. The Kick-a-Poo has a new location in the atrium at the front of the cafeteria. Children will get to enjoy meals prepared on site in the Jefferson kitchen! Children will also have the opportunity to swim in the pool as a part of the PE program. So many opportunities!
Please join us for a Welcome Back/ Open House and New School Orientation/tour on Tuesday September 2nd between 1:00-3:00. Teachers have been anxiously awaiting your arrival and visit. At that time, you can meet other families, visit classrooms, and listen to a brief overview of school-wide expectations and new site-specific school policies. Immediately following your visit to the school, please join the parents and the PTA for an afternoon of fun at the Edgerton Recreation Center (right across the parking lot from the Jefferson Campus). There will be additional snacks, a uniform swap (for returning families), and the water park will be open for your enjoyment. At that time you can also learn about the PTA volunteer opportunities we have at school and sign your child/ren up for a recreation center.
