Dear Cavalier Families,


Happy Mother's Day to all! Parents play such a critical role in influencing the importance of academic achievement and obtaining an education. Thank you for your partnership in guiding our students towards academic success!


This week's announcements:

  • We will be on a TESTING Schedule all this week. School will be dismissed at 1:05 pm every day. On Monday, students will go to the lunch area before school and look for their name and see what teacher they will report to for testing. Please remember to update your iPad, here are the instructions. Charge your iPad every night and bring any earbuds to plug into your iPad for testing. If you do not have any, do not worry, we will provide some to you.
