21-22 Class List
Class List will be posted on Tuesday August 17th 9am to 3pm. We invite our parents to come to the school and find out who their child's teacher will be for the school year. Please bring a pen, pencil and paper to write one. Many of our parents use their phone to take a picture.
Please be aware that class changes will not be permitted, we have worked really hard to balance our classes using student data. Moving or changing a child's class it like wearing a shoe size that does not fit for the rest of the year. Each of classes are created to service our students with their academic needs.
Thank You for your understanding.
