Dear Parents,

Wow! What an Extraordinary Patriot SY 2020-2021 was…in more ways than one! We had a successful year despite having challenges unlike any in our history! We just want to take a minute to say thank you to all of our Patriot families for your support of our school in both the physical building and also in our virtual classrooms. There were so many wonderful learning experiences for our children. 

As happens most years, we have experienced a couple of staffing changes. However, be assured that we will continue to have high expectations and create rigorous, engaging lessons for all of our kiddos during the 2021-2022 SY.

If you didn’t have the opportunity to be a part of the PTA this past year, we hope that you will join this organization as we move into the new school year. The PTA is a great resource and support to our students. Hats off to all those who have volunteered their time and talent to the PTA!

In order to prepare for the school year, please take a few minutes to review the following beginning of the year information and procedures.

For additional information or questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact us throughout the school year.

 

Principal: Dr. Lisa McGee

Assistant Principal: Ms. Monika Kerner

Administrative Officer: Ms. Laura Blood

Secretary: Ms. Rhonda Zimmerman

Registrar: Ms. Erica Saunders

REQUESTS FOR CLASS PLACEMENT – Requests for a specific class placement will only be accepted in writing to be reviewed and approved by the administrators. Any requests for a specific classroom should only include the type of teaching style that is being requested to help your child be successful. Please refrain from requesting a specific teacher as this is most difficult to accommodate due to the need to balance classroom membership.

CLASS LISTS - Class lists will be confirmed following the registration of new students enrolling during the summer break. This year, parents will receive a back to school letter with your child’s class teacher and room number approximately one week prior to the start of school.

REQUESTS FOR A CHANGE IN CLASS PLACEMENT - As with any new experience, children must have time to acclimate to new classrooms and become familiar with new procedures and expectations before making a decision to change. Written requests for changes in class placement will only be made after a 4-week waiting period. Any special/extenuating circumstances should be addressed with the Principal by appointment.

DISMISSAL ROUTINES - If parents have a need to pick up their child prior to the end of the school day, we ask that you do that before 2:00 PM (M, T, Th, and F) and before 1:00 PM on Wednesdays.

We look forward to welcoming your child to their new class this school year.

 

Respectfully,

Dr. Lisa McGee, Principal
Ms. Monika Kerner, Assistant Principal
