Welcome to the 2017 -2018 School Year
What a wonderful first day of school we had! The start of the school year is always filled with so much promise and excitement. The joy on the students’ faces as they see old friends, greet the teachers, and start their day is heartwarming! And I am always a little surprised to realize how much the children have grown over the summer vacation.
As is our tradition, we kicked-off the new school year with a Back to School Assembly at both Elk Grove Campus sites. The purpose of the assembly was to introduce our teaching teams and support staff.
We also held the first of three safety drills that will be conducted this first week of school. On Wednesday,
we held our fire drill, on Thursday we will be practicing our earthquake drill, and on Friday, the students and staff will practice our lockdown/shelter in-place procedures. These are drills that we practice regularly throughout the school year.
Lastly, I would like to ask that we all be aware and sensitive to the fact that we have students and staff with severe food allergies at both sites. Signs are posted on classroom doors identifying the specific type of food allergies a student or staff member may have within the classroom.
Again, welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year…it is going to be AMAZING!
