Dear Families,

Another snowy week! I hope you have all been able to stay safe and warm.

As you know, school will be closed again on Monday. The Boys and Girls Club is open 9-5, to support families with the day off. Please note they will also be closed March 1.

On behalf of the CMES Board, I would like to thank everyone who participated in a strategic planning focus group in the last few weeks. The Board received valuable input into the community’s hopes for the school’s future and looks forward to developing a plan that is both visionary and achievable. If anyone has additional thoughts or was not able to attend but has input to share, please let me know by next Wednesday, February 20.

I would also like to take a moment to remind you all that children tend to separate more easily when they are leaving you and not vice versa. To support independence, ability to separate, and to preserve the children’s ownership of their environments, we ask that you please say goodbye and greet your child in the lobby. Staff are always available to walk your children into the environment if they are not able to do so on their own, and we will also gather them for you when it is time to go home. There has also been some confusion about the start time at Cornerstone: the Toddler Community and Children’s Houses begin their days at 8:30, with arrival until 8:45. Elementary children may also arrive between 8:30 and 8:45; their school day formally begins at 9:00. Thank you for your cooperation with these principles.

I am excited to share an event for parents/guardians in the Early Childhood program (Toddler and Children’s House communities): on March 5, immediately following dismissal at 4:30, please join us for Self Compassion: Taking care of ourselves so we can keep being great parents. This event is sponsored by Serving the Whole Child and includes dinner and child-care. Please click here for more information and email Zitlali to RSVP.

Enjoy your long weekend,


Fun in the snow    Fun in the snow
