Dear Parents,

This special edition was coming live from Montana de Oro; past tense as I am now back in town! I returned yesterday with a couple of sick kids :( I am sure you are missing your children, but please know they are all having a fabulous time. On Tuesday we explored the sand dunes and walked along the beach. The children ran and played and made sand sculptures showing off their incredible creative spirit. Wednesday morning they climbed Mt Valencia why I took a break in town with those unable to make the hike. On Wednesday night we did a silent night hike to my favorite sand dune and circled under that glorious bright moon. Truly magical.

Your children will return looking incredibly dirty and worn so expect long showers and an appreciation for their beds this weekend!

Here are some photos of those first two days. More will follow as everyone arrives home and we can upload and add.


We have a couple of action items for you.

Please take the time to sign up for our Parent Conferences.

Also we need YOU to volunteer for our Harvest Festival. Check out the job descriptions and get on board to make this annual event a great success for yet another year. We only have three weeks to make this happen!!
