Over the weekend I was able to watch some of the Olympic events. I have always looked forward to the Olympics—not just because of my love of sports—but because of the dedication of the athletes and the sense of unity we all feel as people from all over the world come together to compete. I hope all of you are enjoying it as wellJ.

As a school, we are always seeking to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents and teacher to give feedback on teachers and administrators. The survey will remain open until Wednesday, February 21st. Third through sixth grade students will be invited to participate in this survey during computer class; if your kindergarten through second grade students would like to give us feedback, we would encourage you to help them with this at home. The purpose of this feedback is to help us improve our instruction, to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons, and to celebrate what we are doing well. For feedback to be most helpful, I would suggest being polite even who sharing intensely positive or negative feelings. Thank you for your feedback. Survey link:
