1st Quarter Awards Assembly

Yesterday was our 1st quarter Awards Assembly. Over 80% of our student body received academic or attendance recognition. So proud of these focused and diligent students. Let your child know how proud of them you are. It is also good to remind your child that their effort right now determines their success for second quarter. You can watch the replay of our Awards Assembly on our Facebook page.
