Principal's Report

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Greetings Everyone - As of today there are only 48 days of school left on the 2017-2018 school year calendar. Time is flying as we head into our state testing, more VAPA shows and the end of the school year. Yesterday I listed all the remaining important events on the school calendar, which is posted just to the right of this column. All you have to do is click on the date and a description of the event will pop up. From now until the end of the year I will use this format to communicate via our “Electronic Newsletter.”

Between now and the end of the year there are many events listed, including Battle of the Books, Saturday Schools, Grade level shows, Red Carpet Awards and Kindergarten Promotion dates, just to name a few. Take a few minutes and see what’s coming up. Thanks so much for reading this and see you around campus.
