Wednesday, October 3rd 6:30-8:00PM
This Wednesday evening will be an opportunity for us to come together -faculty, board members, administration, and parents to create intention and more understanding about the possibility of New Amsterdam moving towards building a first grade and beyond. We look very forward to sharing our thoughts and hearing from you. We are expecting someone from each family to attend.
Please let Lisa know if you have any questions. Lisa.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beginning Monday, October 1st
We will have a new and required sign in/sign out sheet for every child and every day. When you arrive on Monday there will be a clip board for your class. The parent or caregiver bringing your child will need to sign them in. At pick up every child will need to be signed out. Each person picking up or dropping off your child will need to be listed and authorized by you. We will have extra authorization forms for you on Monday. We hope to make this as easy as possible. Many thanks in advance for these extra steps.

Isn’t it something to discover that the composed and poised adult is, in fact, well-balanced?)" Be sure to read the full article on the blog,
