Let Us Know What Is On Your Calendar...
We are always looking for ways to better know and serve the needs of our students and families. From time to time, we are made aware of an event in the school community (e.g. a vocal music concert, awards or banquet night, etc.) after the event has taken place. Even though our calendars are finalized months in advance, it is helpful to know when such events are scheduled. If there is a date you think we should have on our calendar for future reference, please contact our office.
