Parents & Guardians:

We are now headed into Term #2 and we are very excited to begin the journey into the next 45 days. We have so much to accomplish and we are definitely ready for the challenge - Let's get after it.

As for last week, our Parent Conferences went very well. I want to thank all parents for signing up early and making the night very smooth. Once again, NJHS and STUCO students assisted with the process by being door knockers and ambassadors for our school. All in all, it was just a great night and it was fun to talk with so many families. We are always looking for feedback on the process, so please take a moment to tell us how the night went for you. The survey will be at the end of this publication.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.
