FROM THE PRINCIPAL: We are in the home stretch of school now with only 37 days left. Please note that in many classes, especially in the senior grades, in-class assessments and exams will be beginning throughout the months of May and June. Please be sure to have your child arrive on time for school and inform your child’s teacher if they are going to be absent during those testing periods.
The weather is changing every day! Please be sure to have your child dress appropriately for their day and even provide a change of clothes. We go outside unless it is absolutely pouring rain and there is a lot of mud and sand.
