As you prepare that oh-so-important "First Day of School Pep Talk" for your child(ren), remember to include the fact that second semester is a fresh start for all. This semester we will be using technology even more than we did before. All classrooms will be equipped with a class set of laptops, to help take student learning to the next level. Scholars will also be completing more assignments using our on-line educational programs. Our scholars will be using iReady Online Learning Program, and Acellus Online Learning Program more frquently than before. We hope to start the new year off with even more determination, and even more tenacity, than before, we hope your scholars match our passionate instruction, with their perseverance, and excellence.
