Congratulations to our girls basketball team who finished the season strong and won their first playoff game. They didn’t advance tonight but pushed themselves hard to the last second of the game! 

Girls soccer tryouts are the week after next, and we are still looking for a coach! If you know anyone who would consider coaching this short season, please email

Kindergarten German Dual Language Immersion Interest for 1st Grade

  • The kindergarten DLI interest form went home last week and was also emailed. Please fill out the form and send it back with your student as soon as possible, so we know who wants to be in the German DLI program next year. 

Kindergarten Night, Tuesday, March 12th 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

  • Bring a friend or neighbor who is trying to decide where to attend Kindergarten.
  • Meet our three amazing teachers!
  • Take part in a mini lesson from our first grade German dual immersion teacher to see what the future will hold if you want to be in that program.
  • Talk to preschool and after school program coordinators and directors.
  • This is a second kindergarten night similar to the one we had last month with the addition of our German teacher. 

German Dual Immersion Night, Tuesday, March 19th 

  • 5:30-6:00 p.m. Kindergarten and first grade students interested in entering the German DLI program next year (in first or second grade) will see what a German lesson is like, and parents will learn all about the program and reason to consider being a part of it.
  • 6:00-6:30 p.m. Learn about the Germany trip and junior high/high school for German DLI students. This evening is designed for current DLI students in 4th, 5th and 6th grades but anyone who wants to know about the path forward and trip to Germany are welcome to attend.

We look forward to seeing all our families this week sometime!
