Hello all!

We have a bit of a delay this year with our curriculum night but after reviewing your feedback we've set a date for you to come in and get comfortable with your kids' teachers and classes. Join us on October 2nd for Curriculum Night. Prior to the evening we'll have info sessions online, via video, and in person about our three primary programs to check student performance (Canvas, Infinite Campus, and Behavior Flip). See link below for info.
