A Note From Our Principal

This month our school will be hosting a food drive to support the Idaho Food Bank in our Kids Helping Communities initiative this summer!     Please bring in some non perishable food items to participate.   Students will be weighing the food at the end of week 6. We are grateful for the opportunity to watch our students serve others in the weeks to come and appreciate the role you all share.

We still have a few more weeks of summer camp and our teachers are hard at work preparing our classrooms for the new school year.   Our goal is to return to our in person Montessori classrooms but new in the upcoming school year is the option to enroll in an online schoolhouse.   If you are interested in this online option, please notify the office and we will send you the details.   Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns in the interim.


Summer Camp Survey

We will be reaching out to camp families in the next few weeks to gather feedback on our summer camp program. The survey will be sent via email and we’d love for all camp parents to participate so we can celebrate our successes and make plans to improve our camp program next summer. Please keep an eye out for the survey!



Student’s & Facial Coverings  

Effective August 3rd we will be requiring all students to wear facial coverings while at school.   The exception to this requirement will be when eating/drinking or while playing outside.   We will talk about the grace and courtesy aspect of wearing a mask much like we wash hands.   Students will even have a chance to make their own mask during week 6!   Our efforts are to do our part in prevention while also recognizing this is a learned skill.   Thank you for your support.
