Dear Hollygrove Families,

We have an exciting announcement this week-- the long awaited and updated NEW Larchmont Charter School website is LIVE! This effort has been months and months in the making and we are thrilled to finally launch our new communication hub! As you can see, we're also upgrading our weekly blast format as well! This new format should be more aesthetically pleasing and user friendly. Additionally, no more having to look back in your email to find old blasts for information. All of these blasts (old and new) will be housed in the website under the Hollygrove tab. That said, we may need a few weeks to get more proficient at posting on the website. We're going to start out slow, but will ramp up over the next month. Thank you in advance for your patience as we continue to make progress on our goal of streamlining school communication! Please be sure to look over the website which now houses: teacher websites, bios, the weekly blast, contact information for all staff, lunch menus, important forms, academic information, and more!

It was so nice to see everyone at Back to School Night this week. We hope you found the evening informative and helpful in better understanding your child's classroom as well as larger school issues. We also hope the time in your classroom communities was an initial step to building a smaller Hollygrove virtual community. We encourage each classroom and each grade level to continue getting to know one another through outside virtual get togethers. If you were not able to make the General Session, please be sure to check your email for the link to the general session and the corresponding slide deck! If you were not able to make your child's classroom session, please be sure to read your teacher's follow-up email or watch any video link that was sent out.

We're in a nice routine as we head deeper into our first month of school. Parents, brace yourselves -- even while going to school from home, it's going to fly by more quickly than you ever could have imagined.

Have a great weekend!

Alissa & Eva
