WELCOME BACK FROM ES PRINCIPAL JAMES

Greetings from the Elementary School,

I hope your vacations were restorative and included plenty of family time and positive memories. One of my favorite parts about a new school year, is hearing all of the stories from students as I walk the playground and through classrooms. Our family vacation was spent reconnecting with family in the United States. It was fast paced and at times crazy, but worth every moment.

During our in-service week, we have spent time in professional development looking at the craft of teaching and finding ways to improve individually and as a learning community. Of course, our teachers have also worked very hard to get their rooms ready for the first day of school. This detail plays such an important role in making July 30th successful.

We look forward the seeing and chatting with our returning and new families. The relationships we create and nurture as adults will help create successful outcomes for our children. With so many families and backgrounds at Nido, we have the potential to create a positive and rich school culture.

Kind regards,

Greg James

WELCOME BACK FROM MS PRINCIPAL SHAWE

I trust that your child enjoyed the winter break – traveling, reading (I hope!), sleeping a bit later – and that she/he returned home today excited about the start of the new school year.

WELCOME BACK FROM EYS PRINCIPAL COTA

One of my favorite aspects of working within the Early Years School (EYS) is being able welcome the new and returning students to the EYS. It is such a joy to see the excitement and sometimes the apprehensive looks upon their faces as they enter their classrooms filled with new friends, teachers and environments.
