2020-2021 School Year

A few notes for the week....

We will send home a final email about play details on Wednesday!


Please remember that Thursday is DRESS REHEARSAL day! Students should bring their play costumes and props and be prepared for our final rehearsal at VTOTA.

* * *

Join us for smiles and community following the play at Freddy's on Old Vail Rd.

This is not a fundraiser, just a place and an opportunity to enjoy

a treat and the company of each other.

* * *

There is NO HOMEWORK CLUB after school on Thursday due to the play performance in the evening. Please make plans!

* * *

We are asking our families to please keep our students safe when dropping off in the morning, or picking up after school -- particularly in the crosswalks on Drexel and on Night Bloom. In an effort to keep our students and staff safe when crossing Drexel Rd. and Night Bloom, we have asked TPD to patrol the roads before and after school. Other efforts are also underway, including repainting the crosswalks and some signage to increase speed awareness.

Wednesday, Jan 29 is a half-day! Students will be dismissed at 12pm.
