News from the principal

Happy New Year! I trust that your students have had a good start in remote learning. The events of the week all around our country have made for a stressful and somber start to the year. Please join me in praying that God watch over us and lead us through this time of uncertainty. I look forward to having students back in the building beginning on Wednesday. God’s Peace to you all this weekend.

Mark Your Calendars: All Parent Meetings in 2021

We are so grateful for the time spent sharing ideas and input in all of these areas.
