September 2023 Monthly Update

Message from the Principal

What a lovely first month of school! It has been a pleasure getting to know your children. Thank you for your patience and grace as we all learned new routines. I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Breakfast with Ms. Bridget or our Watch Me Work night on September 20.

We will be holding Caregiver Conferences on Monday, September 25. Your classroom guide will reach out directly to set up a time to discuss your student(s).

As always, please reach out via phone or email to set up a 1:1 meeting if you'd like to meet with me.

Your Principal,
Bridget M. Farr
