End of Year Assembly
Hopefully you have marked your calendar for the End of Year Assembly, being held on Saturday June 2 at 2:00pm at Olympus High School’s auditorium.

Please note: every class in the school presents something in the assembly, from 1st through 8th grade. Preschoolers and kindergarteners do not perform in the assembly, but those families are invited to come watch the assembly if you’d like to.

No Drop Off and Pickup at Creekside Park Thursday May 24
Because of the construction in the park, the whole parking lot will be closed for the day on Thursday, May 24. This means that all students will need to be dropped off and picked up at the school, with no option for using the park that day. At pickup time, students will be held at the school and not allowed to walk to the park.

Housing Needed for Visiting Waldorf Teacher Training Faculty
If you have extra space to share with teachers visiting our school for Gradalis Waldorf teacher training, please email Donna Long at dlong.gradalis@gmail.com Training is from June 20 through July 8. The teachers are very quiet houseguests, who are at the school for training for nearly 12 hours each day, and they will pay for cleaning at the end of their stay if you’d like that option.

Dress Code: Changes for Next Year
We want to give families plenty of notice regarding some significant changes in our dress code policy, which go into effect for the 2018-19 school year. This information was made available to you in the re-registration process (the revised Dress Code Policy was attached in the re-registration email), but in case you did not thoroughly read all of those attachments, we’d like to highlight the biggest changes here:

Starting with the 2018-19 school year, we will no longer allow hair that is dyed a color that is not naturally occurring. We are providing advance notice of this so that you will not dye your child’s hair at the end of the summer and have a problem on your hands!

From the policy:

Children shall not wear:
a. Hoods or hats indoors.
b. Outdoor boots or coats in the classroom.
c. Dangling jewelry (including necklaces, earrings, etc.)
d. Watches or other devices that have computing capacity.
e. Hair dyed colors that are not naturally occurring.
