Just a reminder on illness from our Handbook:

Before returning to School, your child should be fever free and vomit free for 24 hours and, if given an antibiotic, have been taking it for 24 hours. In the case of a contagious illness, the School does require a doctor's certificate verifying that the child is in good health and able to return to school.


Admission activity is picking up. Thank you for your referrals. Your testimonials continue to be our most important marketing tool. It is looking like we will have a busy spring! 

Please invite friends to the January 28 Saturday Scramble in the gym.


Save the Date:  April 8, 2017 . . . We will be hosting our most important fundraising event of the year. We hope you will join us for a JOYful evening including a silent and live auction.

If you would like to donate an item, event tickets, or a unique experience to be included in the live or silent auction, please complete a DONOR FORM and return it to Jen Matthews in the Development Office.
