a moment of reflection

In affect on Thursday, July 1, 2021, when our students return to the classroom for the 2021-2022 school year, during their homeroom/1st period class, a moment of silence will be respected daily. Families should speak with their child(ren) about the moment of reflection assigned and how the classroom individual should choose to spend the time and use it.

In today's hectic society, too few persons are able to experience even a moment of quiet reflection before plunging headlong into the activities of daily life. Young persons are particularly affected by the absence of an opportunity for a moment of quiet reflection and all students will be served a moment of silence at the beginning of each school day to use as they choose.

Sibling Link

Students enrolled in grades K-5 who have a sibling enrolled in grades 6-8/MYP Years 1-3 will be permitted to remain on campus in a supervised environment until their sibling is dismissed at 3:15 PM. Additionally, 6th through 8th grade/MYP Years 1-3 students who have siblings in grades K-5 may arrive on campus beginning at 7 AM with their K-5 sibling. This is a no-cost service to our families. Please click on the link to submit your information for approval to use Sibling Link for the 2021-2022 school year.
