Principal's Update September 10th, 2022

By Daniela Fiess

Hello CBESS families,

I want to thank all of our students, families, and staff for their patience and flexibility as we navigated through our first week back!

We have welcomed a number of new students this last week. For the Elementary students, there will be adjustments to our original class configuration. We will continue with our current three learning groups for the beginning of this coming week--I will update you on the adjustments as soon as things are finalized.

Let me take a moment to also introduce Ms. Kyoko Conne, our new Inclusion Support and Primary Teacher. Kyoko is well known to our elementary students, having previously worked as a TTOC in our district. Kyoko is excited to bring her passion for the Early Years to CBESS and she is currently working with the children in our k-1 learning group.

Middle and high school cohorts already have their draft schedules for the coming week, and we expect to have final schedule adjustments settled by Friday. In the meantime, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

It has been wonderful to have the school filled again with our fabulous students, and I am looking forward to continuing to serve in my current role until Sarah Wick’s return on December 1st.

 I conclude with a friendly reminder to all students, staff and volunteers at the school to stay home when sick.


Have a great week, everyone!
