But wait…This week is really all about celebrating the beginning of this new school year! And that celebration has been in full swing since late August. On August 28th, we welcomed our youngest students to Kinder Camp – the first official day of school for the Yosemite Room. On the 29th, we joined together as a whole-school community for our Annual Popsicle Party – greeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones. After a beautiful Labor Day weekend, we regrouped this Tuesday – the first official day of school for our 1st-6th year students.
For those of you who are new to Mill Falls, each Friday this newsletter – the Mill Falls News – is sent out via email. We use this as our key form of school-to-home information sharing about our programming and school happenings. The newsletter has important links to documents, key dates, information about Montessori, and features photographs from the week.
Thanks to so many of you who have sent in classroom supplies, flowers and even some treats for staff. Your generosity and kindness has helped make our first week a wonderful one!
