From The Principal

Welcome back from our Fall Break! I hope you all had a relaxing and fun week with family and friends!

We are already hard at work as we start the 2nd 9 weeks of school! Coming up next week, we have Early Release and Parent/Teacher Conferences in the afternoon of Wednesday, October 23. You may receive a call or email from your child's teacher to meet on this day. If you would like to meet with your child's teacher, please reach out to him/her via email. Remember that our dismissal time on our Early Release Days is 11:50, so please make arrangements to have your child picked up at that time.

Your child should received his/her report card for the 1st 9 weeks of school tomorrow, October 18. Please take time this weekend to review your child's progress and contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.

Have a great weekend!
