November Notes from the Principal

From the Principal’s Desk

We have had an amazing 1st quarter! Yes, that’s right… we are now into the 2nd quarter of 2016-2017! It has been a great start to the year. I thoroughly enjoy visiting all the classrooms and observing the engaged learning that is taking place! Parents remember we have conferences scheduled for the nights of Nov. 1st and 10th. Elementary teachers are scheduling 15 min. conferences with all parents. Middle School teachers will be available in the Commons to speak with. We look forward to seeing you then!
