Mr. G soars into the Blogosphere scene!

It’s a Bird…It’s a Plane…Wait…It’s a BLOG! Welcome to the inaugural posting of Java & G. I’m a few cups of coffee in to this marvelous morning and find myself prepared to share a highly caffeinated and informative update.

We have a lot of exciting things occurring at Greenwood this summer; here’s a pithy run down of updates and items to look forward to in 2012-2013!

Plans for a new addition are underway and we are hoping to break ground this fall and begin construction of four new classrooms and a new gymnasium.

Development of a virtual tour is being conceptualized. We hope to achieve the perfect blend of innovation and information so that families and prospective families can learn more about our school at a time that is convenient for them. Check back later to see where this exciting virtual project takes us.

We continue to enhance our communications with families and are delving into Facebook, Twitter and more. Your feedback is always appreciated, and we’re trying to meet families where they are at to convey important information while being responsive to your needs and input.

With a growing school comes the opportunity to grow our talented faculty! We are continuing the hiring process and have almost rounded out our team of “new recruits” for next school year. I can’t tell you how excited I am to share more about the team of teachers and support staff that we will have joining us next year. We’re lucky to welcome some VERY dedicated and caring professionals to the team.

Please be sure to check out the Summer Learning Bingo games on the school website. We have some really neat prizes to recognize the effort of students that choose to participate over the summer. A video podcast featuring “Mr. Math” and Mrs. Gibbons is also available on our Facebook page explaining the summer math and reading games. Check it out!

Thanks for an amazing year of learning and fun…have a great summer!
