Principal's Message

June 2018

“Time in nature is not leisure time; it's an essential investment in our children’s health (and also, by the way, in our own).” ― Richard Louv
It is amazing how quickly a school year passes! I would like to thank each child, parent, and staff member for the part you play in our school community. Spring is a time of newness and anticipation in our school. Not only are we concluding this year’s learning, with assessments, activities and events, we are collaboratively planning and look forward to the 2018-19 school year. We look forward to sharing a few changes and exciting events we are planning that will support and enhance our work with your children. Our common TLC values guide us as we make decisions and plans. Our School Council supports and enhances learning opportunities and purchases for all students in collaboration with staff and has funded many activities, supplies and technology this year. We thank you for all you do!
Each child in each classroom has grown and learned so much throughout these ten months of school. Teachers have celebrated by sharing the projects, assessments, providing feedback for improvement and the work throughout the year. Much of what a child learns is not measurable. We realize that learning has taken place in conversations, observations, applying new knowledge in new situations, and in the questions our children ask. We also know that learning flourishes when there is a positive relationship with the adults and other peers whether at school or in homes. I would like to take a moment to thank our amazing staff, classroom assistants, office team, lunch room team, as well as our teachers here at Colonel Sanders School. Each of them contributes in unique and valuable ways of teaching, interacting, and supporting you and your children each and every day.
At a time of year when we are thinking about and looking forward to summer, may I suggest that you take the time as a family to do some natural learning in comfortable conversations building the strong relationship between young and “old”. May this summer give you time to explore and learn together outside and in many different environments whether it be on a vacation, in the backyard, or doing household chores together. May each of you enjoy a summer filled with joy, learning, and fond memories. Richard Louv suggests in his research in “Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder” that “There is a canyon within a reasonable distance of nearly every school in the city," What an exciting prospect, a network of natural libraries for teaching children about the region’s rare and fragile ecosystems - and about themselves. May you experience nature’s library this summer. We look forward to welcoming each one of you on September 4, the first day of school.
Happy Summer! We’ll see you in September.
Sincerely, Mrs. Harms​
