Dear Kozak Community,

I am delighted to see the trees start to bud, the flowers emerge from the soil and the sunshine warming the earth. Our students are enjoying outside time on the fields and in the playground. Happy Spring! 🌷

A huge thank you to our wonderful PTO for the Bingo Night! It was a fun event, with wonderful food provided by Sunnyside and sponsored by the PTO.

Reenrollment for the 2024-25 school year will start on April 1st. You will get an email from Open Apply and you simply need to click a button to confirm your reenrollment.

Best regards,

| School Year 2024 - 2025

 

Dear Families,

We are making plans for the 2024-25 school year; we expect our school to continue to grow both in size and diversity. We will honor our commitment to offer significantly reduced fees from our pre-war tuition to help provide education to as many families as possible. However, our 2024-25 fees have increased slightly. If the fee increase is a challenge to your family’s finances, please apply for a scholarship. We are committed to helping our community. Please see the new school fees and school calendar for the 2024-25 school year. The re-enrolment process will begin in April; it is a very easy process through Open Apply – you will receive an email.
