Home-School Connection: From the Director

"Begin with 'meet the teacher' day, before school begins. At this time we will collectively decide on a "room mom" that will help with communication.

"Mom's coffee, Open house, Christmas programs, Spring programs are all special activities we encourage our parents to come to and be involved with.
