Coffee with the Principal

Commencing in October, I’d like to invite you to a recurring schedule of ‘Coffee with the Principal’. Each Friday morning, between 7:45 and 8:30, I’d be happy to chat with you about aspects of the school program as well as get the opportunity to meet you. Coffee will be provided, and we’ll find a place to chat indoors since, I hear, the winter mornings can get pretty chilly around here. I’ll send a schedule next week as - likely - each Friday will be devoted to parents from a specific grade. First Fridays with Freshman parents, Second Fridays with Sophomores, etc. The details will be forthcoming next week and I look forward to the chance to meet you throughout the year ahead.
