News and Notes

Dear Parents,


Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the extra day! This Friday is Valentine's Day. As a gift to the students, they may have free dress down in Valentine's colors of red, pink and white. Don't forget that next week we have no school due to February Break. Break will begin on February 17th and classes will resume on Monday February 24th.


Report Cards go home this Friday. Please remember that if tuition is not up to date, your child's report card will be held in the office.


This Friday, Friday the 14th, is the last day for students/families who chose half year payments for Pizza Friday to pay their balance. If you want your child(ren) to continue to get pizza from Friday, February 28th until the end of the school year please have your payment in ASAP. One slice every Friday is $18 for the remainder of the year and two slices every Friday are $36. Thank you.



Thank you and have a wonderful week!

Enrollment for 2020-2021 School Year is Opened!

Our enrollment/registration process opens today, February 10, 2020.


We will be using the TADS system for enrollment/registration again this year. When you complete the enrollment process for each student, and pay the registration fee, your student will be guaranteed placement for the 2020-2021 school year. All parents, both returning and new, will receive a separate email for each student who will be attending our school. This email, which will be sent from support@tads.com, will include a brief overview of the registration process and a link that is unique to your student’s information for enrollment.


An incentive rate is being offered for those who register on or before April 15, 2020. You must complete this process no later than April 15th to receive the reduced rate of $125 per child . If you register after April 15, it will be $225 per child.
