Parent Letter - December 11
Posted on 12/12/2022
Principal's Message Hello Birch Lane Families,

Happy Week 16 of the 2022-2023 school year!

I hope you and your family have a restful Winter Break. It is hard to believe that is is almost 2023. I have seen so much growth in your children over the past trimester and I have truly enjoyed getting to know the Birch Lane Community of students and families. Thank you all for your warm welcome and grace as I navigate the ins and out of being a new administrator at Birch Lane. When I work with students on campus and teacher, I remind them of the mistakes that I make and will continue to make to shine a light on the perseverance it takes to stick with things that are hard. Although I have only been at Birch a short time, it already feels like home, that is my wish for the students as well. I look forward to working with you all in the new year!

If you are looking for a good parenting book and podcast, try Good Inside by Dr. Becky. It is my current favorite podcast and book!

I am also including messaging attached on the form for making sure we create good habits to improve school attendance.

Upcoming Dates:

December 16 Pajama Day (this is optional)

December 19th-January 2nd Winter Vacation
