Wild Wednesday

Weather permitting, we will resume our 'Wild Wednesday' activities beginning this week (4/25) so send the kids prepared with some sturdy outdoor shoes and a light jacket even if it looks like it will be nice out (might be deep in the woods where it's cooler in the shade).

We will do things from simply walk the perimeter of the pond or take our science books to the yurt, to going on an all-out hike on one of the trails blazed on school grounds! Thanks for your assistance.

2018 Parent Satisfaction Survey

Within the next week, all parents will be receiving (via U.S. Mail) a letter with details relating to completing a Parent Satisfaction Survey. This is an annual process, used to solicit meaningful feedback from one of our most important groups of stakeholders - our parents.

Last year we administered the survey electronically, and we received an overwhelming response rate - thank you! We want to beat last year's response rate, so please be sure to complete your online survey. Administering the survey online has made the process much simpler for parents.

Convincing all of our parents to complete a survey is vital. We (staff, administrators and our governing Board of Trustees) use this information when making decisions about improving school operations. Furthermore, parent satisfaction is key to our charter (our contract with the Wilkes-Barre Area School District), which is currently up for renewal - we have submitted our request for renewal to the Wilkes-Barre Area School District are awaiting a response. Not obtaining this feedback could, in essence, be detrimental to the future of our school.

Information will be mailed out later this week to all parents. I urge all parents to take a few minutes and share your opinions with us. Thank you in advance!
