  • 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: All parents interested in attending field trips must submit clearances to be eligible.

This year, we have changed the criteria for our Jewel of the Month assemblies. In order to be eligible to dress down, scholars must earn a set number of LiveSchool points for the month. If your child is eligible to dress down, he/she will receive a dress down ticket on Thursday. This month, invited scholars are allowed to dress down in the color GREEN!
