We have had another great week here at 110 Champion Way! Next week we will have our first late start of the 22-23 school year and we look forward to DIVE-ing into the curriculum with our teachers and helping them plan relevant, meaningful instruction that meets all students where they are.

Do Everything Safely: We have Officer Hutchinson (grandfather to two lower school students at our school) Monday-Thursday mornings and afternoons in the carline. We appreciate him joining us and choosing our school to support! Please give him a wave if you see him!

I am a Leader: This week our first group of fifth graders produced The DIVE (a weekly video show for lower school shown every Friday). This was an excellent experience for the students and they did an AMAZING job. A HUGE thank you to Mr. Jackson for creating this experience for our fifth-grade students. The DIVE captures students from all grade levels and is produced by a group of fifth graders each week. All fifth graders will have an assigned week to produce an episode of the show this school year!

Value: All Our Kingfishers are doing an amazing job valuing the learning of others by transitioning quietly throughout the building.

Engage: We saw all of our Kingfishers DIVE into the curriculum throughout Lower school this week. Everything from a “Book Tasting” in third grade, learning about mixing colors in Kindergarten, to making ice cream as a part of learning about solids, liquids, and gasses in fifth grade. Looking for a way to engage with us? We are looking for volunteers for the Fine Arts 5K now! Be on the lookout for other volunteer opportunities (Fall Festival, classroom volunteers, etc.) on Volunteer Tracker as they are available!

Don’t forget to show your Kingfisher pride on Fridays by wearing spirit wear shirts with uniform bottoms!

August is off to a great start in Lower School. The year is starting off strong– it looks like it will be our best year yet! 

As we get back into the routine here at school, Investments are a highlight for all of our Kingfishers. They are DIVE-ing into Spanish, PE, Visual Arts, Theatre and Music. This fall, you will have several opportunities to learn about what your Kingfisher is learning in Investments! Open House( September 13), Our first ever Bring Your Parent to PE Week (October 10-14) and our Investment Sharing Night (November 18) will all be great opportunities for you to join us and learn more!

We look forward to seeing all of you at the Fine Arts 5K (September 10), Open House (September 13), Math Night (November 1), and our first Lower School production of Willy Wonka kids this fall (November 8 and 9).

Our first home Volleyball game is on Tuesday, September 6th at 4:30, consider joining us to cheer on the Kingfishers!
