Dear Open School Families,

Our school year is off to such a phenomenal start. All of our students and teachers are getting to know each other and establishing classroom norms and safety routines. Ms. Lew, Ms. Imani and I have been on the yard and in the classrooms getting to know all of the children. Please encourage them to stop and talk to us, as we are striving to get to know each and every one of our students.

Moving forward into the new school year, will require much of the same. However, one thing that you can always be certain of is that Open School will put the needs and safety of our children first and foremost.

We were so excited to have 14 alumni apply and to be able to send all fourteen off to college with a special gift.
