Weekly Wrap Up & Announcements

What a fun and festive week! We had a great turn out at Barnes and Noble Monday for our Literacy Night. It's so wonderful to see our students excited about books! I look forward to more events like this. Wednesday our band and chorus treated us to a wonderful concert to kick off the holiday season. And tonight, I am eager to see our elementary drama students present their first-ever winter show. We'd love to see you at the Weiss School to support their performance.

Last weekend, our chess students took home new hardware from Chess Nationals. Our 6th grade team placed 7th in the nation! Way to go Patriots, Mr. Tillis, and Mr. Abrahams.

Please remember that our lottery is open now for next year's applicants. If you have a sibling you'd like to join our school next year or if any of your friends are planning on trying for a spot in next year's lottery, please be sure to apply now, during our early window, so you have the best chance of being selected from the lottery. Once we do the first random lottery drawing in mid-March, the chances of being selected drop dramatically. For more information, or to apply, please visit We will offer tours twice a month beginning in January. Please direct any new families to our website to check out and sign up for a tour.

Thursday, December 21st is an early release day and the start of our Winter Break. There will be no school for students December 22nd-January 8th. We look forward to seeing students return on January 9th for the second half of our school year.
