FINISHING THE YEAR STRONG!
With less than 20 days left of instruction for the 2019-20 school year, we want to take a moment to double down on our commitment to ending this year in a strong way! As the weather warms up, there is a natural tendency for students to be a little less focused than typical. Our teachers are hard at work helping students finish the year on a positive note and keeping everyone engaged. We appreciate your support and continued monitoring of your child’s work completion in the days ahead. Thank you for all that you continue to do!
