  • Important Message from the Principal

    Dear Parent/ Guardian,

    Progress reports will not be going home on January 19th.  Report cards were sent home on 12/9/16, parent teacher conferences were held 12/14/16 and Winter vacation (12/26-12/30), not sufficient instructional days passed to issue a meaningful progress report. If there is a concern regarding particular students, teachers will be in touch.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions in this regard.  Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Gray
    Principal
