Dear Families,

The weather is getting colder, but our hearts are filled with warmth as the holiday season approaches. It is a fun-filled time to spend with our friends and family while we enjoy traditions and winter cheer!


We would like to thank students, staff, and parents for contributing to our success. We have had an outstanding first semester with many opportunities for our students to demonstrate their amazing talents and passions. Thank you to all of the teaching staff who have continued to work exceptionally hard to ensure that the students are able to grow academically and emotionally.


We will release early at 1:00pm on Thursday, December 16, 2021. School will resume at 8:00am on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. We want you all to have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Lee SHINES!


Love,

Mrs. Poteet & Mrs. Anderton
