8th Grade Kings Island Trip

All 8th graders attending the Kings Island trip MUST have their permission slips and money to the office by Tuesday, April 30th.

Last Round of SLCs for 19-20 is Tuesday

We know spring is a super busy time for families. We'd love for you to swing on out and participate in your child's final SLC of the 19-20 school year so you can see how far they've come academically and in their presentation skills. Based on your feedback, this round will not be mandatory but we'd really like to encourage you to attend.

Tuesday from 4-7.
