It is hard to believe we are preparing for the final week of the school year. For families who have been with us for more than this year, please note that the last day of school is much different this year. The last day of school is a full day on Thursday, May 30. Our closing chapel service will begin at 2:00pm on Thursday. All parents are invited to attend. After the service, students will return to their classrooms to pick up all materials going home and will be dismissed with their class at 3:00.
Thank you for a great school year! God’s Blessings to our Graduates and all others leaving for a different school. We will miss you.
