November 19, 2021
Dear Bulldog Families,
The first trimester is officially in the books! It was a successful trimester, and we know the next two trimesters will be amazing as well. Thank you to our students, staff, and families for their commitment to academic excellence and unwavering support thus far this year.
While we will miss the students next week, we recognize the break is well deserved. During the time away, enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation. We hope to connect with families during our first parent teacher conferences of the year. This is always a wonderful time to collaborate with your child's teacher and hear about their academic gains up to this point. Please contact your child's teacher directly with specific questions related to conferences.
We wish you a joyous Thanksgiving as you celebrate with family and friends. As we embark on the holiday season, reflect on all that we have to be thankful for. We look forward to seeing everyone back in the building on Monday, November 29th.
Have a blessed holiday!
Ms. Amanda Venegonia, Principal
Mrs. Sara Leone, Associate Principal
