Weekly Update - 2/19

End of Trimester - March 11th

Students and families,

March 11th is the last day of Trimester 2. Please make every effort to ensure all school work is completed before or by March 11th. Remember to do your very best work!

It is extremely important communication between students/families and teachers flows back and forth especially as we close in on the end of the trimester. We want to address concerns now versus March 11th.
