Parents & Guardians:

As we swing into the second week of March, things are shifting into high gear. We have a short week filled with lots of exciting things. One focus will be our Term #2 Scholar Breakfast Ceremony. We are looking forward to recognizing our second round of young scholars. Students who maintained a 90 average or above in the four core areas will be recognized. We are looking forward to another great celebration. Parents and guardians are welcomed to attend.

Additionally, I want to thank the parents who attended our Coffee & Conversation last Friday. We had meaningful and productive conversation around homework and other school-related matters. It's always great to received feedback so we can strengthen the learning process.

Wishing everyone a great week.
