Welcome back, Markers! We had a very active and productive first week of school, as we hope you heard from your children at home! As we had mentioned last spring, the staff wanted to invest a good portion of our first week to preparing for the year. As such, each morning, we focused on a specific topic that included different approaches to helping the kids engage in the topic. (Preschool students, so dependent on learning their routines, wisely opted out of these sessions but will join us later this week for our first Extended Family Time of the year).
