Hello Families!

Hello families,

Thank you so much for your attendance at last week's Parent/Teacher conferences. It was wonderful to see so many of you, whether on zoom or in person.

As we look to next week, note that we have full days of school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We are then on winter recess until Monday, January 3. Please note that there is no school on Thursday, January 6 in observance of Three Kings Day.

We are hopeful that each of you will find some time to relax and enjoy your family this holiday season. We are truly thankful for our AAE families, and we wish you all the best.
