A Note From Our Principal,
Happy New Year! We can’t wait to spend 2020 with you and your children. Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month. The amount of goods that we received was more than we could have hoped for. The City House was so appreciative for all of the things that we were able to provide them with, all thanks to you. We also enjoyed having our school-age students with us for winter break camp. Thank you to all who were able to join us!
Please take a moment to read through the news and reminders below and let myself or anyone else on our administrative team know if you have questions or concerns.
Links 2 Home
If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school.
Online Parent Communication
In addition to our newsletter the ‘For Parents’ section of our website also includes links to our menu, monthly calendar and school year calendar. We update these items frequently to ensure you’re always in the know. Though we send information through Links 2 Home, our calendar can be printed or even downloaded directly to your device. Our menu and school year calendar can be printed or saved for easy reference as well.
