Happy New Year! We have a lot of exciting things coming up this semester. Please continue to watch the website and newsletters for information.

It is important that you take note of the redistricting meetings. This could affect your child's home school for the 2016-2017 school year. It is important that you watch for information about the meetings and plans, so you have the opportunity to share your input before the board makes a final decision later this semester. We will continually share information as it becomes available.

The first courier for the semester on Thursday, January 7 will have your child's report card, sign-up sheets for conferences and the schedule for honor's day on Friday, January 15. As always if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me or Dr. Henry.
