Scott Erickson, Head of School

Since classes finished last June, our faculty, staff, and administrators have been hard at work on a number of program initiatives. More on those at the end of this message. But in addition to these innovations, we have another important goal this year: Extend love of learning into the parent community by delivering high-quality family education to support a healthy school culture. My team and I want to make sure that PBS parent education is a love-of-learning opportunity: a way to strengthen our spirit of community, appropriately customized to address the concerns and challenges we're seeing. We want to pilot new approaches so we can better serve your needs and ensure strong school-home partnership. To do that, we need your help and input.

This is a great opportunity to learn about our program and meet some of our amazing educators. They'll address many of the questions we receive from parents during the admission process about the PBS approach to teaching and learning, and you'll have the chance to ask your own questions.
