Thank you, Parents.

What an amazing final week of school we have shared. Thank you, parents, for making our last week exceptionally special by showering all of us teachers with cards, pictures, gifts, food, and more food. And did I say food? One of my most challenging decisions as I daily prepare for school is what to take for lunch. The delicious breakfasts and lunches you provided for us were truly a blessing. We were able to concentrate on the student and classroom details that were looming around us. Thank you for such thoughtful acts of kindness.

Thank you, more, for trusting us with your children over the past year. It is with great sadness that I concluded Assembly this morning. The year has been one of evidence of God’s “holding us together” as we moved to our current location and celebrated another moment of maturity as a school. I look forward to seeing how God continues to direct us.

Have a “wonder-full” summer with your families!

Report Cards

Year-end Report Cards may be picked up next Thursday, May 11th between 9 a.m.-1:00 p.m. A parent MUST pick-up the report card from the office so that you may sign the original to be kept in the student’s file. You will then receive a copy of the original.  Report cards will not be released until we have a signed copy of the final report card for 2016-2017.

If you wish to schedule a parent conference with your child’s teacher(s), please contact the teacher(s) as soon as possible to schedule conference times.
