  • 3rd-4th-5th Track Meet Hello parents, Well it’s that time of year…yeah you guessed it, TRACK MEET TIME!! Yes, another year is coming to an end and it’s time to hit the track.

  • February Newsletter Happy February families! We are pleased to announce that Parent Teacher Conferences which are student-led will happen again in February. The student-led conference process empowers the student to direct and report on his/her progress at school. It is a research-based practice used in many exemplary schools. Our teachers have been trained to assist, direct, and support our students throughout the preparation process. They have coached, critiqued, and evaluated their students in order to have them ready to present to their parents and guardians. In short, the students will be running the show, so please make sure that your child attends the conference with you. Students are excited to lead their conferences and show their progress this ...
