Dear Parents,

Thank you for all of your support! It is hard to believe that we are almost finished with the first nine weeks of school. 

We have a short week, next week with Monday's Student Holiday and Staff Development Day. We also have school pictures on Wednesday.

Parent/Teacher Conference information will be sent out at the beginning of next week by email. 

Thank you again for all you do for our school! Have a great weekend!

Dr. Kathleen Cox
