It was great to see so many people at the Pancake Breakfast and Shopping Spree last weekend. It was a wonderful event filled with good food, music and most importantly excellent company. Thanks so much to all those who donated items for the Pancake Breakfast, the many staff and family volunteers for helping pull everything together, Jennifer Dugan for organizing the Shopping Spree, the Girl Scout Troops for their donation drive and to Jennifer Cortright and Cari-Ann Schur for taking the lead at helping to pull off our delightful Pancake Breakfast.

The Pancake Breakfast signals the beginning of the Holiday season and kickoffs what typically is a busy December for our families and staff. Please make sure to look at the dates and times of the upcoming concerts below. Our students have been working hard at preparing and are eager to perform.

December also brings the beginning of a new trimester for our students. Teachers have been extremely busy over the past several weeks generating report cards and providing comments on student progress. Please look for report cards today. They will be sent home with students.
