Campus Updates & Reminders:

We will be coming up on spring conferences very quickly! Your child’s teacher will reach out to you individually to let you know if they are requesting a meeting to review your child’s progress. Please note that all students in grades 1st-6th will be dismissed at 1:35pm during conference week (March 18-22) to allow time for teachers to meet with students. Our TK and Kindergarten classes will operate on their normal schedule.

The annual intent to return form is now open! All families of students currently enrolled in TK-5th grades are asked to complete this form no later than Friday, March 22, 2024.
