  • MAP test to measure growth over the last semester
  • Reflect on your first semester
  • Meet with Mrs. Bravo or Mrs. Komo to complete a Semester 2 individual learning plan

Parent Corner 2

It’s cold and flu season! We all want healthy babies and toddlers. Click HERE for some great tips and tricks on keeping your children healthy and happy during the winter months. A reminder that we ask babies and toddlers to stay home if they have any symptoms of a severe cold or any flu and remain home for at least 48 hours after the symptoms are gone. This protects that child and other children on campus.
