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
