You will be informed about your child’s class placement by postcard the week before school starts. Please update your contact information, if needed, by stopping by the front office (M-Th 7am-4pm) with your proof of address, or by emailing it to Beth Ferry, (put “Change of address” and student name in the subject line).Buy school supplies if you haven’t yet: the PTA, or renew your membership, to support our school:

Clothing and Book Swap

As you cull those closets and get ready for a new school year, set aside items your family has outgrown for our free clothing and book swap! Save the date: Saturday, Sept. 7, 10am to 2pm.

Jabo’s Garden

Thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers who came out last Saturday! We made great progress: the cutting bed is installed and planted and A LOT of weeds were cleared. There will be another volunteer opportunity this Saturday from 8:30-11:00am. Tasks on the agenda are:

1. Install the stone borders for the veggie beds.

2. Continue to clear vegetation around the herb garden.

We are also looking for volunteers to help trench the irrigation lines and build the chicken run in the next two weeks. If you know of any high school students or Boy/Girl Scout troops looking for a project or volunteer hours, please have them contact Sara Partridge at 512-417-5270 or

Meet the Teacher

Meet the Teacher is on Monday, Aug 19, 11:30am-1pm. Class lists will not be posted.
