Looking Ahead

  • Parents will also receive an invitation to our final end of the year awards ceremony in the gym on June 8th at 12:00 (this is still a tentative time/date). Please be on the lookout for that invitation in your inbox in the coming weeks.

Final 30 Days!

We are in the final 30 days of school, and we are beginning to see some old behaviors and forgetfulness from the beginning of the year creep back up. Please encourage your student to continue to show their SPOTS even into the final days of the school year! Thank you!

Congratulations! - Ryan and Amy

Congratulations to this month's SPOTS character trait winners for showing RESPONSIBILITY in the month of April. Way to go Amy Cherian and Ryan James!
