Book Fair Thank You

Thank you to the many volunteers and shoppers who made the book fair a huge success. Together we raised $2,832 in University Bookstore credit for Ms. Pat to buy books for our library.

We also donated more than 100 books to Mary's Place to help start its library for homeless and underserved kids.

All-Parent Survey Results

Read More

Thanks to the 122 parents across all classes for contributing their perspective through the survey. The responses were mostly positive with a 91% satisfaction rate, and the details ensure the PTA’s use of time and money remain consistent with parent priorities. The PTA Board is going to focus on these opportunities to improve, among smaller targeted changes:

  • Continue balancing investments with the English Language Arts side of academics
  • Find ways to invest in social emotional skills (e.g., counselor, RULER, etc.)
  • Find a volunteer to focus on school funding advocacy for the PTA (anyone?)
  • Find a volunteer to lead playground improvements (Bueller?)
  • Make a simple explanation of the budget (e.g., a simple pie chart) and spread it broadly

You’re welcome to read the detailed summary of the results

Where : Room 105
Fee : $50 for 4 classes

Register online : Space is limited to 20 students. If you have any questions please email Akiko Ogami.

Akiko taught English in Japan for fifteen years and Japanese in the United States for the past seven years. She enjoys engaging with each student and seeing the vivid expressions when they grasp new concepts. She is constantly hunting for novel approaches to keep lessons fresh and the process of acquiring a language approachable and fun. This four-session course will cover basic conversation (greetings, weather, numbers), basic writing (Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji), and useful travel conversation (for hotels, restaurants, shopping, etc.).
