Principal update

Welcome to Broadway families and students

Welcome to Broadway Learning Center for the 2018-2019 school year! If your student and your family are new to Broadway, we welcome you to our school family! Broadway is home to the Longview School District Special Education Preschool Services (ages 3 and 4) as well as extended day services for students in need with autism, speech, and motor services. We also provide consultants to Lower Columbia Colleges ECEAP classrooms, and Early Head Start. All of the staff at Broadway are committed to serving your child with high-quality instruction.

As the new Principal of Broadway, I am ecstatic to join this school family and community. A little about myself is I grew up and graduated from Longview School District. I have taught in Arizona as well as Seattle. I completed a Preschool through 3rd grade graduate program through the University of Washington to gain a broader perspective on alignment in our K-12 system to early learning programs. Early Childhood Education is the key to success for students later in their educational career, and we have a fabulous staff here at Broadway as well as our Head Start and Early Head Start counterparts on campus. We will be focusing on how to manage our “upsets” and learn to use the classroom safe place as an avenue to calm. Be looking for your student practicing the “STAR” – Smile, Take a deep breath, And Relax! You can practice too!

A big change for schedules this year at Broadway is we have chosen to move to school sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. There will be NO SCHOOL ON WEDNESDAYS for the 2018-2019 school year. This is time when we assess incoming students, and collaborate as a staff to meet the needs of your child and our classrooms.

Our daily schedule is as follows:

AM Morning Sessions (3 year olds)

9:00      Morning classroom arrival – Students picked up at a double doors off a parking lot
11:20   Lunches served to students
11:50   Dismissal – students go to buses or picked up by parent (please be at the double doors before 11:50am for a smooth transition home)

PM Afternoon Sessions (4 and 5 year olds)

1:00 Afternoon classroom arrival – Students picked up at a double doors off a parking lot
3:35 – Dismissal – students go to buses or picked up by parent (please be at the double doors before 3:35pm for a smooth transition home)

Wishing you well,
