Valentine’s Day!

We love to celebrate Valentine’s Day! Your child is welcome to bring valentines to school on Valentine’s day. For the sake of simplicity, we ask that you put only your child’s name on the “from” and refrain from filling in the “to.” We’ll have students distribute their valentine’s in their homebase room and then, if they would like, they can distribute them to the other homebase rooms as well.

The class breakdown is as follows:

Mrs Chapman: 22 (not 21 as previously stated)

Mrs. Goetz: 22

Mrs. Greene: 18


Counselors Corner

On Thursday, February 9th I will be facilitating a Parenting Support Group for ACA2 parents on Zoom. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm and will last approximately an hour. The purpose of this group is to provide a space for ACA2 parents to share their parenting successes and frustrations, and engage with a supportive parenting community in a safe environment. Since this is the initial meeting, parents who attend will have a voice in molding this group to suit ACA2 Parenting Group needs in the future. The group will be co-facilitated by my fellow staff member Ms Deena who will be sharing her unique experience/expertise in many difficult parenting situations. Any ACA2 parent/guardian is welcome and invited to join.
