Your child’s teachers will post class updates, pictures, reminders, and important information about homework, classwork, and projects on their websites. In the meantime, please take a look at our staff roster for a list of our staff names and positions.
Please come out to our Back-to-School Night, which will be on Thursday, September 17, 2015, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. There will also be an optional session with the Head of School at 7:00 pm to discuss the updates to our Hebrew Immersion Model and schedule.

A FAQ document (of answers to a few questions we received during the first week of school) went home in your child’s Tuesday Folder. If you did not receive it, you can review it here.
Please remember to complete and submit the Student Information Sheet to your child’s teacher. The Student Information Sheet allows you to provide the vital information we need in order to keep your child safe (i.e., allergy information, pick up and drop off contact information, etc.).
Extended learning: The number of participants signed up for our extended learning program doubled during the first two weeks of school. We are currently in the process of hiring additional staff for our extended learning program to ensure student safety by keeping our teacher-to-student ratios as low as possible. If you have not yet paid for extended learning for your child, please do so as soon as possible. You can submit a check or money order made out to “Sela PCS” to Ms. Zaccheus, Sela’s Director of Extended Learning. Please remember to write your child’s name and “Extended Learning” in the “memo” area of the check.
Please check out my blog every Friday for ongoing information, updates, and reminders.
