Lower School Principal Message

Happy Valentine's Day!  With tomorrow being a professional development day and Monday a school holiday, I hope you enjoy the long weekend. We will be working on the new PYP Enhancements and planning how we intentionally teach our ATL skills (communication, research, thinking, self-management and social skills) in our units of inquiry. As part of the new enhancements, we are also allowed to create our own internal planning documents, so the whole PYP team (including JS teachers) will be analyzing our internal documents to create consistency and prepare ourselves for the next IB self-study. The PD days are extremely valuable for our curriculum development!



A new endowment was given to honor our teachers for their academic excellence. You have the ability to nominate a teacher who has made an impact on your child by filling out the form HERE.



Come run with us on Sunday, Feb. 24th as the PFA hosts the annual fun run around the campus. The run starts at 9:00 so the gate will be closed by 8:45 with registration at 8:00am.  Registration is online this year.  Lots of volunteers are needed so if you'd like to help with coordination and set-up please click here or email



A reminder that financial aid and scholarship applications are due on Feb. 15! For a list of scholarship opportunities click here.



All our kupuna and grandparents are invited to Books and Bagels to read a book with their grandchild and learn more about Le Jardin Academy. Please RSVP HERE.
