Hello upcoming First Graders and Parents,
It’s been a fantastic beginning to summer. I hope you have been enjoying your break so far. I’ve been spending time with Mountain School Staff, hiking mountains in Colorado with my husband, camping in Verde Valley and Sedona with my kids, finding new swimming holes, reading really great books, and getting the classroom set up for you to come to once all the beautiful moments of summer start to wind down (not too quickly though). I can’t wait to hear about your summer adventures!
Our first day of school is Thursday, August 9th . Please come prepared with two snacks, a lunch, a labeled water bottle and the supplies listed below.
