Principal’s Message

Hello Blossom Gulch Families,

I would like to welcome all of our Kindergarten families! This was the first week for Kindergarten students and it has been loads of fun. All of us are getting back into our routines of getting up on time and working to do our best.

Next week on Tuesday and Wednesday we will be having our Curriculum Night from 6 to 7:30. This is a change from past years and we hope everyone will find the evening worthwhile. We will begin in the gym with some general presentations, breakout session with grade level teams and then time to meet with individual teachers. Our teachers are very dedicated and have important information to share with parents about our curriculum, the skills they will be teaching your children, their expectations and routines. We will have adults here to supervise children while parents are meeting with teachers. The dates are:

First grade: Tuesday, September 16

Second  Third grade: Wednesday, September 17

Please remember that school starts at 7:50. We are off to a great start and I an looking forward to a spectacular school year.

Best wishes,

Linda Vickrey
