New Family Garden Gazette

~ Welcome ~

Oh my, are we excited to welcome our new families to The Children’s Garden School!

Let us introduce you to our Garden Gazette, The Children’s Garden School newsletter. During the school year, you will receive this digital communication weekly via email and text.

The Gazette is our main source of school communications for school events, opportunities, recourses, weekly classroom updates, news from the office, important dates and links to areas of information on our website.

In addition to our weekly Garden Gazette you will receive occasional emails and texts that address school or class news and reminders.  Our staff is available to touch base with you throughout the day and you are welcome to pull us aside for a question, text us if you’re running late or s

The Garden Gazette has recurring weekly sections that share the latest news and important information.

View the Bulletin Board for an invitation to join us marching in the Issaquah 4th of July Parade, highlights of some dates to mark on your calendar and  a bit about summer communications.

See our Mousehole section to learn more about what this weekly communication from the classroom will bring.

We are so fortunate to have such amazing families and our Gratitude Corner is a place we can share our appreciations for everything our families are doing for the school.

Our Calendar shows a few important dates to save in September including our New Parent Luncheon, All School Work Party,  first days of school for each class and our daily school schedule. We will be finalizing our calendar over the summer and will offer updates before the start of school.

Look for start of school information in our monthly Summer Garden Gazettes in July and August before our weekly Gazettes start in September.
