Greetings from Dr. Garcia

December 14, 2019

I'm in Indianapolis this weekend celebrating my nephew's graduation from the University of Indianapolis. Today is a beautiful reminder of the power of education, relationships, and perseverance.

Families, please note that December 15th is the deadline for the magnet applications. Applications should be submitted by midnight. Remind your friends and family to check out our online applications and submit before it's too late!

Please remember that Thursday, December 19th is the last day of school for scholars. We will also have a dress down day on Thursday to help support the PTSO. Scholars can pay a dollar to dress down and are encouraged to wear festive attire.

Our Winter Concert is Tuesday, December 17th at 5:30 pm. It is a great opportunity to see our scholars shine! We hope to see you there. Please note that all participants should follow the dress code outlined by the music directors.

Thank you for a wonderful first semester. It is truly an honor to have your children entrusted to us, and we wish you a safe and joyous break!
