Trillium Room May 25th

It’s been a wonderful year for us.  Thank you so much for allowing us to spend the schoolyear with your little treasures.  Hopefully, you feel as we do that many special things have happened in the Trillium Room.

This week, we continued our journey to the past as we learned about the daily lifestyle of children in the mid 1800’s.  The kids enjoyed hearing which games were common before the rise of technology and even made up their own low-tech games.  We highlighted the local town of Latourell and learned about the colorful family that founded it.  Our field trip on Friday gave us the opportunity to imagine walking the same streets when it was a bustling party town.

Portfolio Night is Wednesday.  Arrive any time during the one-hour slot you indicated.  When you arrive, your child will lead you through 4 stations which you can visit at any pace you choose.  At the end of the night, you’ll have a box of things to take home.  Please do not arrive after 7:30, as we must close up at 8:00.  We will not distribute progress reports on Wednesday.  They will be mailed the week after school dismisses.

This time of year, we always get questions about a child’s class placement for the coming year.  The default is that we’ll keep our current kindergarteners and 1st graders.  However, if you have concerns about your child’s current placement, DeeDee Hanes is always willing to hear your concerns.

Here’s some information about summer classes being held right here at school!

Kristin Wold About Kristin Wold

This is my 28th year teaching in Corbett. I am incredibly fortunate to have brilliant, energetic colleagues; creative, supportive administrators; and parents who over-whelmingly love partnering with the school to make the best possible opportunities for their kids. I have a great job.
Professionally, my passion is working with emergent readers. I strongly believe that our first priority in teaching reading is to get kids to love books. We need to introduce them to authors and topics they’ll love so they’ll seek out reading for pleasure.
Personally, I have been married for 30 years and have a 16-year-old daughter who attends Corbett. I enjoy traveling, hiking in the gorge, and studying Japanese.
