Dear Families,

As I sit down to write the final edition of the Garden News for this school year, I am
overwhelmed with thankfulness for the opportunity to be at the helm of this
wonderful school and to work with this incredible staff. I am also thankful for you, our
community. Together, despite the
Covid-19 pandemic and all the challenges that came along with it, we encouraged
your child to learn and grow in a loving and safe environment. Your children
have thrived at a time when many others have withered, and we are proud to say
that we made a positive difference during this historic time. We hope you all feel
the same.

For those of you whose child is moving on to Kindergarten, or whose children are not
returning to ACG in the fall, we wish you and your family nothing but the best.
We will miss seeing you each day here in the “Garden”. Please remember that our
alumni are important to us, and we want to know what great accomplishments your
children achieve, so we ask you to keep in touch via our Facebook page, or by joining
us for our 50th Anniversary Celebration in the Fall. We will keep you informed as it is our hope
to hold a long overdue community event in October.

For those of you who will be returning in the fall, we hope you enjoy the summer and
remind you to check your email periodically for important updates and for your
welcome letter in July. This letter will
include vital information regarding health and safety updates, beginning of the
year festivities, what to expect for Open Classroom days, and when class lists
will be posted. Summer Session starts on
Tuesday, June 1st, and the 2021/2022 school year begins on Wednesday,
August 11th. We look forward to seeing

Please put sunscreen on your children each day before they come to school and dress them in layers. Our weather continually changes, and we always go outside to play. Thank you!

Our last day of school is Tuesday, May 25th and all children will be dismissed at 1:00.
