15th Annual Spring Gala
Thank you everyone who was able to attend and support Saturday’s gala. This year’s event was a HUGE success!
Teacher Appreciation Week – May 6-10
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Join me in showing our wonderful teachers how much we appreciate their service and commitment to our school community. The PTA has some events planned this week, but please show your own teachers how much you appreciate all that they do!
Third grade students will take the ELA portion of PARCC this week. Students will take one unit each day for up to 90 minutes.
Attendance is extremely important on these days. Please support your child by making sure they are on-time, well rested and have a healthy breakfast.
