Thanks for the suggestion on Timz Attack - my kids love it! It's great graphics too! Veronica Wolfe
Dear parents,
Could you please tell Sue Bierce thank you for taking
Christmas vacation time to create our new class schedule. It has not been easy and she is trying hard to accomodate everyone.
Thank you, Michelle McNitt

Do you have general comments, suggestions or questions? You can post them as comments to this post.  Remember, you may always contact us directly for time sensitive matters.
 
Phone numbers for Sue, Ginny and Liz are on the contact page in BLUE...not on the staff page
Website: This is our only real and consistent form of communication with ALL families.  We encourage you to check the site every day.  We post news on the site "AS IT HAPPENS"!!  An "all call" requires several layers of permission and 48 hours of lead time.  Please stay tuned to the website.
Facebook:
 Krysi Connelly has created a Facebook page for the parents for even more communication!  Yeah!  Here is the address: https://www.facebook.com/pages/FLEX/168292626587866

Encouragement coming from all the families has been wonderful! The first week went very smoothly, even though we had a little excitement. :-) Thank you for all your help and cooperation. You  make it a joy to run this program for all of us.
Senior Projects: Seniors will create their projects individually rather than in a class. 

Field trip survey:
the survey is fixed so that you can mark more than one answer per column.

Ballet:  The ballet instructor can teach on "pointe", but families who want that will have to contact her and find out from her how she plans to conduct her Homelink classes. 

Encouragement:
 Thank you all for the encouraging comments!

How many classes? Students may take 10 classes, and they may also participate in field trips.

Online classes:
Students can sign up for online classes after they are registered and a SLP has been written and approved. 

Gymnastics: We have chosen to limit our  gymnastics offerings to floor routines  (tumbling) for the time being, because of the start-up costs of gymnastic equipment.  Our instructor has agreed to offer two classes, one for K-3 and 3-5  and one for 6-8 and 9-12

Pictures: East Valley School District already has a photographer in place to take school pictures for us...so that is in the works!

Pictures and "Bios"
We will be putting up pictures and short biographies of the staff as soon as we have a chance to catch our breath(s)!  In the meantime, click on the names of Ginny and John on the "Contact Us" page to link to some information on each of them that is already available on the web.  More to follow!

Copy machine?
Yes, we will have access to a copy machine as soon as the new building is up and running. the request has already been made.  Great minds run in the same direction!

Let's Choose a New Name!

Many families have expressed an interest in providing this start-up program with a new name.  We will collect suggestions from the comments to this post, sift through them, and create a poll for families to have a voice in this decision.  Remember, the term "East Valley" must be included in the name that is finally chosen.  So speak up! Let's have a great name for our great new adventure!
