Principal News

Dear Reptile Families,

We kicked off April with our first round of FSA Assessments. All students did a wonderful job of working hard and showing us what they know. Thank you to all our families for ensuring that your child was prepared for learning each day. The remainder of this month and the month of May are full of many assessment points. Please check with your child's teacher to determine the exact dates of each assessment. As always, we appreciate all your support.

Thank you,

Colleen Wilkinson
