As director of our school, I have set the following goals for the school 2019-2020 year. These goals were developed based on the Board’s goals for the year, parent and faculty surveys conducted last spring, and my reflections on the needs of the school. I will be working collaboratively with the Board, the administrative team, and teachers to make progress on these goals. Please expect updates throughout the year as we address the needs of our community.
