Dear Parents,

Parent teacher conferences are this week. Teachers are excited to share how your students are doing in school and what they are doing to support them. We look forward to seeing you all this week. Additionally this week we will be having our field day for our 4th - 6th graders this week on Thursday and Friday. Both Thursday and Friday are half days with dismissal at 12:30 PM.
