"You believe in me, Thomas, because you have seen me, says the Lord; Blessed are those who have not seen me, but still believe!" JN 20:29
Message from the Principal
Dear Parents and Families,

Spring Break has finally arrived, and we hope that over the next week your student takes some time to rest and relax. Both our students and staff have certainly earned this break! Shortly after we return, students in Grades 3-8 will complete another round of ISTEP testing beginning on April 17th, so we want all students to come back rejuvenated and ready to finish up the semester.

Over the break we will continue to work on facility upgrades, including replacement of the cafeteria floor and renovations to two more classrooms, one on the junior high floor and one on the main floor of the school. Due to these projects, the school will be closed through Tuesday, April 10th. The school office will re-open on April 11th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We want to wish good luck to Mrs. Burggrabe and twenty-nine of our fifth grade students who will be competing in this year’s Math Pentathlon during Spring Break. We know that they have been practicing various math skills and strategies to take down the competition with the assistance of Mrs. Wolf.

Please note that there will not be a newsletter on April 13th. We will resume publication on April 20th. 

God Bless,
Mrs. Ramos
