Dear Families of Shorenorth,
Another school year is over…almost. No, this year we don’t get to close the door and say to our school, “See you in the fall.” Instead it’s sort, toss, and box. As we take down what we’ve built up through the last 8 years, I think back to all the fun we had making it into the invigorating environment it was. The fresh challenge lies ahead once again and I’m excited to see what we create for children and families in our new home. There are many things to still decide and do when it comes to systems and we’ll do our best to make it the best.
I’d like to thank this year’s board for all their dedicated work on running our school, working on finding a new home, rocking the fundraisers (such a good year to do it!) and keeping us in the know. If you haven’t yet, thank your Parent Coordinator or any other board member for their service this year that has benefited us all. Our board of 2016-2017 also looks very good and raring to go. We just had our first gathering on June 6th at the college at a Leadership Training that we go to so that we may better serve our school.
Cooperative Preschools do take all of us to keep running and any organization is as strong as their weakest member. One of my biggest jobs as Director is to keep us focused on building community and honestly, in times of change and growth, cohesiveness can really rise to the top; so I know this next turn in the river will pull us together even more and I look forward to it. Please stay in touch with each other this summer, take advantage of the fun gatherings and don’t parent in isolation, you are part of the Shorenorth Village and I’m thankful I am too!
Jan is our fearless Director and teaches the Baby N Me, Explorers, Toddlers, and Movers classes! If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact her at email@example.com
