The Beehive

Issue 3

2022-2023

From the Principal's Desk


Dear Blossom Hill Families:


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Everyone is in high spirits and happy to be back at school. You can literally feel the enthusiasm in the air! Students are excited about their classes, teachers, friends, and all the delights in-person learning brings.


At Blossom Hill, the staff is focused on nurturing and supporting the development of each child’s social/emotional well-being and academic excellence. Of key importance is the faculty’s commitment to create a caring climate in which every child is cherished and encouraged to develop their emotional intelligence and social problem-solving skills. In addition, by teaching rigorous, standards-based content in the core academic areas and valuing the arts, inquiry-based science, world languages, and physical education, we are

able to develop confident life-long learners prepared to thrive in the 21st century.  


All of us at Blossom Hill look forward to providing a safe and positive learning experience for your child. One of the vital components for a successful year is ongoing communication between parents and the staff. Anytime you have a question or concern you need to share about your child, please contact your child’s teacher. In addition, it is a priority to me to have a supportive relationship with all Blossom Hill students. If you would like to speak with me, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email, phone, or handwritten note. I value direct and open communication and am dedicated to continuous improvement to make Blossom Hill the best school it can be.


I look forward to seeing you tomorrow at Back-to-School Night. Please reference the schedule below.
