Our students do a great job every day entering the school independently and getting themselves situated for their school day on their own! In our school community, adults will always be warmly welcome, but we have observed that students (even the littlest ones!) grow a great deal by getting their own breakfasts, navigating the hallways, unpacking their bags and changing their shoes all on their own. They can do it! And their independence helps our teachers start the day smoothly. Fridays are special days at St. Anthony Park. Families are encouraged to park and walk their students to class, say hello to teachers, check the Lost & Found, look at art work and make friends with other families. After the school days starts, adults gather for coffee and light snacks and chat with school leaders like Dr. Duke who is often on hand to answer questions or just make a friendly connection.
