Lower School: Welcome Back Information and Updates

Greetings, Villa Lower School Families!

We are so thrilled to welcome you back to campus in the coming weeks. The teachers and staff have been diligently making preparations and are eager to have our students join us on campus. I’m sure our students are eager to hear about their class placements. As is the tradition at Villa, those assignments will be emailed to families this coming Monday, August 23rd.

On a personal level, I am both excited and humbled to be working in partnership with you. I think we have a wonderful year ahead! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns, and enjoy the remainder of your summer.
