Hello Kiva Community,

We have some important and exciting information that we want to share with you:

October Student Count - Parents, please remember that Wednesday, October 3rd is student count day. Make sure your student is in school on this day! The more students we have present on this day, the more financial resources we will receive to support our program.  This is crucial!

Building Update - We’re excited to announce the first day in our new building will be Monday, Oct 1, 2018! The first portion of our building is nearing completion for occupancy and we couldn’t be more excited for our students, staff, parents, and community. In addition to the already scheduled professional development day on Friday, October 12th, school will also be closed to students on Thursday, October 11th to provide our staff an opportunity to prepare their Montessori environments.

If you are available Saturday, September 29th and/or Sunday, September 30th we could really use your help moving in! Please contact your child’s lead teacher for more information on how you can help.

We will be seeking:

This is the day we have been enthusiastically waiting for!  We can’t wait to enjoy our new location!  Please reach out if you are able to help with the transition.
