What a wonderful event this was. Thank you to all the teachers, especially Mr. Munk who organized this. Also thank you to Janet Miller and her team of adjudicators. We will be able to announce the students who will be going to the Regional Fair after Spring break. Students who think they might be selected and who would like to go should save their project boards.

School Organization and Parent Requests
We are just beginning to look at the school organization for next year. Information from parents is valued as we try to determine the best class for each child and group of children. If you would like to make a request please do the following: talk to your child’s current teacher first; write a letter or email to me making your request in terms of the educational environment and teaching style which you think would best suit your child. Such requests should come to me before April 30th 2015.
