From The Desk of the Principal:

Dear Parents and Guardians:


As we finish up the month October, I want to recognize and say thank you for all of the cooperation and patience parents and caregiver have shown. In the pandemic world we are living in, things definitely haven't been easy. In other words, it takes a village. With that being said, please be sure to log into your child's SchoolBrains account to follow their academic progress. It's important to note that Term #1 ends on November 13th. We are all here to help and assist each child as we continue on the learning journey. Additionally, please stay in contact with your child's teachers, as they are working very hard to accommodate multiple layers of students' learning needs - we are all here for you!


Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween. Be safe, be smart and have fun. Please enjoy the weekend. Also, don't forget to move your clocks back on Saturday :)


See below for some important points of the upcoming week.
