Hello IS Families,
We are so happy to have had our first week of classroom enrichment days with your children! It was fantastic to see the kids return and welcome the new students to the program. We already had some great discussions about supporting each other in creating a positive learning environment as well as what we're looking forward to this year as a class. Thank you all for getting in your Month 1 attendance and learning logs on time! It is so great to see the amazing, rich work that is being done at home. Keep it up!
