Dear Parents, 

2019 is off to a great start! We are excited to have all of our students back at school with us to begin another wonderful semester. Registration forms for the 2019-2020 school year were sent home last week with the youngest student in each family.   Please complete the forms and return by January 18 with the $150.00 registration fee per child to secure your child's placement for next year. If you do not receive the forms, please call the office. All accounts (tuition, after school, etc.) must be current in order to register for the upcoming school year. If you are not returning next year, please let the school office know of your plans.
