Parent Reminders


  • OCTOBER 1PM DISMISSALS : In October, we only have half day Wednesdays on 10/9, 10/16 and 10/23.


  • CHANGING SEASONS: As we head into fall, the temperature is cooler in the mornings. Please ensure that scholars are transitioning to long-sleeved uniform shirts along with their sweaters, vests or blazers. Outside hoodies and jackets must be removed once scholars are in the building. Scholars who are out of uniform compliance will not be able to participate in our monthly dress down incentives


  • FIELD TRIPS:The Rising Stars academy will attend Linvilla Orchards next Friday. Only parents who have submitted clearances will be eligible to attend. Final chaperone information will be communicated next Wednesday.
