Camp Michindoh - Fall 2016

We are excited to begin our preparations for 5/6 Camp in the fall. Staff & students will be traveling to Camp Michindoh in Hillsdale, MI from Wed. September 14th to Friday, September 16th.

To make this experience amazing we need the assistance of our fantastic parents. Chaperones are needed! Please consider attending camp with us and spending 2 1/2 days watching as the kids grow and learn in an outdoor setting. We will take as many parent chaperones as we have space for. (At some point we will run out of beds!)

Please add this to your calendar and return the permission slip by next Tuesday, June 7th.

We would like to collect money at that time, but we understand if you need to send the payment later. Please get the permission slip in by that date.

I have talked to the camp about dietary restrictions and allergies. They have assured me they are prepared to handle it all. Please make sure you list this information on your child's medical form so we can take care of it. If you are a parent chaperone with dietary needs please let us know also.

Spring Conferences

These conferences are similar to the format in the fall. There will be 10 minutes to meet with both Mrs. Marks & Mrs. Brown about all subjects your child has with them. They are optional. If you have met with your child, gone over their reflection sheet and feel you have a good understanding of their achievements and struggles for the year there is no need to sign up to meet with us. We understand this is a busy time of the year and with the holiday right around the corner we do not want you to feel pressured to come in. If you would like to send us a quick email to check in we can "conference" with you that way too.

Conference times are:
Wednesday, March 23rd 5-8pm
Thursday, March 24th 1-4pm & 5-8pm
