  • Welcome to the 2016 School Year!

    Posted by Leslie Thornton on 8/12/2016

    Dear Families,

    I know many of you are busy finishing up vacations and beginning to focus on back to school shopping and all of the other important details as school begins. The school office is getting busier by the day now. I look forward to greeting our many returning families as well as meeting our new families.

    Class placement letters will be mailed on Friday, August 19. Along with classroom assignments, you will receive helpful information on events during the first few weeks of school, as well as the suggested supply list from the grade level teams. To aid you in planning, here are a few important items for your calendar:

    Monday, August 22, 7 PM: New Parent Night in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) The PTA and I will be there to share helpful information and answer your questions. 

    Tuesday, August 23, 11 AM-12 PM: Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten Classroom Visits. Parents and students are invited to visit their classrooms and meet their teachers for this very helpful hour. We find it quells first day jitters when the students have had the opportunity to see their room and meet their teacher ahead of time. 

    Wednesday, August 24, 8:15 AM Our first day of school! Yard supervision will be available at 7:45. The first bell will ring at 8:10. I encourage you to come early to avoid the heavy traffic as school begins. This will be our first day with our school bus. Remember that parking is available along Belvedere and on neighboring streets. Please be very careful to avoid blocking our neighbors driveways. 


    I look forward to a wonderful new school year!

  • Staffing at Strawberry Next Year

    Posted by Leslie Thornton on 5/14/2015 7:05:00 PM

    Dear Parents,

    While we will have very little change in our staffing for next year, I do want to let you know about a few changes. The biggest news is that Liz Caroli has decided to retire. Liz has been at Strawberry since it reopened in 2000. She began as an aide, served as a RAMP teacher, and has taught kindergarten, first grade, and third grade.
    We will miss her passion and love for children, and wish her much joy as she begins a new season of her life.

    Grace Dunn will be moving back to Tam Valley to teach full time. She has been a great partner for Heather Levasseur this year in third grade. Next year, Heather will be teaching the first half of the year fulltime, and then Kimba Lacky, who is currently teaching third grade at Edna Maguire,  will be teaching the second half of the year.

    Cristi McCabe will be moving from fourth grade to the open third grade position. We will begin the interview  process for the open fourth grade position next week.

    The rest of our wonderful teachers  will be returning next year. Kimba and Mari will be wonderful additions to our staff.

    I look forward to another great year at Strawberry Point!

    Fondly, Leslie

  • Rock Steady Juggling

    Posted by Leslie Thornton on 1/10/2014
    Today Doug Nolan came with his annual Rock Steady Juggling for grades 3-5. It is sponsored by Marin Count Water and is free to schools. He changes to show every year, and the kids love it. Ask your child some ways to conserve water and also what three items he juggled at the end!
