December 12th-December 19th

Thank You!

We are winding down a successful first semester of school. We've enjoyed your children so much this semester and they've grown by leaps and bounds already. Next week brings the hustle and bustle of the end of the semester with parties, assemblies, and more celebrations. We invite you to be a part of what you can to help us celebrate. Please scroll down the newsletter for all the details.


I wish you all the happiest of holidays and safe travels for all of our families that travel near and far during our winter break. Remember that we will dismiss at noon on Friday, December 19th for the break!




Warm Regards,

Dear Parents,

As part of our ongoing efforts to receive feedback on important topics, we would appreciate your participation in a brief five minute survey to rate your perceptions of common reporting strategies related to student performance. Examples include report card grades, state assessments, homework, college courses and college prep exams. This information will help us in our ongoing efforts to engage the community and improve communication regarding the progress of your child.

The survey is accessible through the web site and phone number listed below. It will be open until December 31, 2014. Thank you so much and we appreciate all you do to help your child succeed.
