The end of the semester is an amazing and stressful time for students and families. So many cool events taking place, like our band and choir concert last week; leading into our drama's performance of Seussical and our girls basketball team playing at Ball Arena this week. In addition, college courses for students are ending and a there are a variety of cumulative projects and MAP assessments on tap this week.

With all that said, the most important priority is family. If you can attend one of these events with your child, do. If the need to put aside some schoolwork for a family dinner is wanted, make it happen.
