Welcome Back - Fall 2012
Friends and Family,
It has been a spectacular summer. The staff has been resting, and relaxing, and attending trainings so that they will be fresh and prepared for the start of the 2012-2013 school year. We hope our Blue Ridge families and friends have been doing the same. It is my belief that these summer breaks are a great time to re-charge, re-connect, and return to school refreshed and ready to teach and learn.
We begin the year with some changes. Our front office has been remodeled. Classrooms may have switched or changed over the summer, and we have added new staff and bid a fond farewell to others. I ask you now to join me in welcoming our newest staff members:
Mr. Bryan Eggert, PE, Ms. Cheryl Thonney, 1st Grade Dual Language, Ms. Cindy Gomez, 2nd Grade Dual, Mr. Russell Carroll, 3rd and 4th Grade Reading, and Ms. Jane Froese, Kindergarten Dual Language
We are very excited to have their energy and expertise at Blue Ridge.
Kindergarten starts with an interesting schedule, so if you are the parent of a kindergartener, please refer to the letters sent to your home, or call the office at 527-3066.
Please remember that we begin Team Time each morning at 7:50 am sharp. It is really important that your child is on time to school to participate in this daily activity. Also, please remember that student pick-up and drop-off is at the back of the school near the playground, not in the front of the school. That's where the buses unload. For your child's safety always pick up or drop off student in the back of the school.
As always, if you have questions, concerns, or things to share - we want to help, listen and problem-solve with you. Please feel free to call the school at 527-3066.
Welcome back, this promises to be the best year yet!
Kim Doepker, Principal Blue Ridge Elementary
