Reminder: No School Tomorrow and Friday

School will be closed tomorrow in observance of Veterans' Day and Friday because it is a Spring Gala winner's designated day off. The day off on Friday is courtesy of the Lauf Family who were the winning bidders at the Spring Gala & Auction on the item, "School's Out!" As the winning bidders, they were able to pick one day when the entire school gets the day off. Thank you, Lauf family. We know the students are grateful for the extra long weekend.
