These enriching programs are being offered in response to parent requests for additional after school academic support. We are only able to run the programs if enough students sign up.

Wednesday, March 13th marks the end of the second trimester. Teachers will be finishing up student assessments and begin the process of completing report cards. Your child’s report card will be sent home on Friday, March 22nd. Please contact your child’s teacher if you would like to schedule a parent teacher conference or if you have questions about your child’s report card. I encourage parents to keep the lines of communication open with their child’s teacher all year long - not just at the end of each trimester. Teachers are always available to meet with parents at any time during the school year. Our new website makes it easy reach out to teachers - just navigate to the Staff page and click on the teacher's email link!
