 ANNOUNCEMENT OF OUR FIRST GRADE TEACHER FOR 2012-2013 SCHOOL YEAR   

It is with great pleasure that we can announce Christiane Bohr as our first grade teacher for the 2012-2013 school year.

Christiane has just had a one year sabbatical after graduating our grade 8 students in 2011.  Her years of experience, which include teaching everything from handwork to high school art along with 8 years as a grades teacher, make her the perfect candidate.  We are all so excited to have her dynamic energy grace our campus again!

ENGINEERING WORKPLACE NEEDED FOR STUDENT PRACTICUM

Each of our 11th graders will have the opportunity to experience a week in a workplace environment of interest to them.  Currently all of our students are placed, except for one.  We are in need of an engineering workplace environment for a student interested in that general field.  If you know of a way to help this student, please contact Miss Ingrid.  More details are on the attached letter. Thank you so much for considering it, as this will make a large positive difference for this student.
