IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE IN FEBRUARY!
The weather has been so unseasonably warm; it is hard to believe that we are in February and Spring Break is rapidly approaching. Continue to encourage your student(s) to stay on top of their assignments and grades. Please reach out to your student's teacher, counselor or house principal if you have questions or concerns. We are here to help!
