A Note from Our Principal
We hope that you all had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with your loved ones. As the winter holidays approach, we have many special activities planned for our students and look forward to spending the season with them. Keep an eye out for additional information in your classroom newsletters and tadpoles.
As the weather heads into winter, please remember that children will need to have boots , snow pants, hats, and gloves when there is snow on the ground. Please label these items as many kids have the same items.
As a reminder, we do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our parents. If we must close, you will receive a notification via Tadpoles as soon as the closure is decided. It also will be listed with the local news and finally, we post notifications on our website.
This year, we are collecting gently used books for Book it forward Idaho. Please drop off items in our school lobby by December 10. We thank you for your generosity in helping others in need this holiday season.
Holidays around the World
Please join your children (after school) in looking at the different classrooms doors as they are highlighting different traditions around the world!

The story of Stone Soup!
Stone soup is a well-loved story of a weary traveler who was hungry but had only a magic stone to make soup. The traveler gets all the villagers to “bring what they got and put it in the pot”. Soon enough with everyone’s help, they have a delicious soup that was made for royalty. They learning that sharing is caring. Our students read this story every year, and as they enter the Upper Elementary program, they are the travelers and townspeople that put on the play for our student body and parents alike. We end with each classroom making a stone soup and celebrating with each other!
Thank you for all for your help with ingredients and time to make this happen for the children.
