As another semester of learning begins, we ask our families and community to join us in ensuring our students attend and remain at #schooleveryday. Missing 2 days of instructional time each month means that students miss out on 10% of the learning opportunities presented to them. Our faculties and staff are ready to welcome our students back on Monday, January 9th!
Happy New Year! As a reminder, students are on Winter Break for the remainder of this week. Classes resume on Monday, January 9th. We look forward to another great semester!
