It has been an exciting first few weeks at Exploris! The campuses are abuzz with students making friends, learning, exploring and discovering. As we ease in to our rhythm, we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has donated to your Classroom Wishlist, our Food Pantry, our Exploration Funds, teacher snacks, and more. Exploris wouldn’t be the amazing school it is without the time and resources our families continue provide. Thank you so much!

The incredible teachers and staff at Exploris have been working really hard these last few weeks to help our kids transition back to school. Let’s show them some love by dropping off some of their favorite things. You can drop off Friday, September 9 in morning carpool at either the Elementary or Middle campus.

*Reminder that we are a nut free school, no please, no treats with nuts!

Spirit Wear

Check out all the choices and order directly from our School Store.

Family Fall Workday

Our Elementary campus could use some sprucing up and we need YOUR help! Come out with the whole family and plan to get your hands dirty. There are two shifts, 9am-12pm and 12pm-2pm with a pizza lunch provided. We will be working on many school improvement projects including: gardening, landscaping, decking repair, painting, etc. 

If you are able to bring ladders, wheelbarrows, power tools, rakes, shovels or a truck/ trailer let us know with a comment when you sign up. The more people that show up, the more we can get done! If you can’t make it, but would like to lend a helping hand, we have a Wishlist of tools to make the jobs a bit easier!

Hot Lunch

Thanks for your patience while we are making the switch to our new lunch program:  My Hot LunchBox.  At this time, we are excited to roll out services two days a week with two amazing community restaurants: 

Tuesday: Mama Crow’s: Owned and operated by one of our Exploris Families!

Friday: Pizza and Deli from downtown Demo’s
