Updated: New Students

We have a handful of new children who will be/may be registering. We try to give teachers a heads up when we know a registration is about to take place. However, we don't always know when a child has an IEP which may delay notification. Sometimes, we find out from the registrar and then only have 48 hours before a child will begin.

Here is an update:

+ 4th grader (3/21) - 4LK

+ 1st grader (3/28) - 1SJ

+ 5th grader (3/30) - 5M

Reminder: Lesson Plans

Please remember to post your lesson plans each week.
