Dear Birch Families,

Thank you for joining us today for our Birch Community Meeting. It was wonderful to see so many of you viewing it live. We hope we were able to address more of your concerns and questions, therefore increasing your comfort and eagerness to return to school on Tuesday, September 8th.

In case you missed it, the meeting was recorded and is available using the link below. Please note, the footage begins about an hour into the video. We have attached our presentation as well.

As the summer fades, we are all a bit saddened. But at the same time, we are so excited to start school. As you know, our school opening will look a little differently this September, but we are confident the children will have a fantastic experience reuniting with their teachers and being part of our community of learners.

See you soon,

Kerri Galante       Chris Hoisik

Principal                Assistant Principal

In honor of International Dot Day, Emily Campay’s second grade class at Birch Elementary School read the book “The Dot” by Peter Reynolds to help develop growth mindset.

They celebrated the day by creating their own unique dots with watercolor paints to visualize their own potential for growth.
