Updated June 12, 2019:

The last day of school for the 2018-19 year will be Friday, June 14. Students have Free Dress that day and will only need to bring a snack. The kids will participate in Field Day from 10:15 to about 11:15, followed by an ice cream treat. Dismissal will be at 11:50 for everyone -- Extended Care will not be available. At 11:51, the 1st graders will graduate to 2nd grade, and the 2nd graders will be 3rd graders...How time flies!

Items will be coming home on Wednesday and Thursday: our Religion books, our Handwriting books, Father's Day cards from First Grade, to name a few. There may be a gift or two as well....

Thank you for all of your assistance and patience this year. I hope you and your students will have fond memories of the 2018-19 school year. I also hope you all have a enjoyable, restful, and safe summer vacation. Best wishes to you, and may God bless you all.
