Welcome to Broadway families and students

Dear Broadway Families and Students,

Welcome to Broadway Learning Center for the 2019-2020 school year! If your student and your family are new to Broadway, we welcome you to our school family! J Broadway is home to the Longview School District Special Education Preschool Services (ages 3, 4, and 5). 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 Principal of Broadway, I truly believe this school family and community is amazing. 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 dedicated staff here at Broadway. We will be focusing on how to manage our “upsets” and learn to use the classroom safe place as an avenue to calm ourselves. Our goal is for students to learn to regulate themselves through appropriate avenues. 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, Wednesday, and Thursday. There will be NO SCHOOL ON Fridays for the 2019-2020 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)

9:15    Morning classroom arrival – Students are dropped off at the classroom door

11:20  Lunches served to students

11:55  Dismissal – students go to buses or picked up by parent (please be at the bus bench before 11:55am for a smooth transition home)

PM Afternoon Sessions (4 and 5 year olds)

         1:00 Afternoon classroom arrival – Students are dropped off at the classroom door

3:40 – Dismissal – students go to buses or picked up by parent (please be at the bus bench before 3:40pm for a smooth transition home)

Wishing you well,

Megan M. Shea-Bates, Principal at Broadway
