"A National Magnet School of Distinction"
Tuesday, October 29, 2019

This school year continues to move quickly as we are now well into week two of the second nine weeks already and opening up the month of November on Friday. We released report cards for the first quarter today. Please be sure to review your child's grades ahead of tomorrow's Conference Night.

As for this issue, we are turning into a month with a number of special events on the schedule. Please take careful note of upcoming dates that may apply specifically to your family as well as those that apply to everyone like this Thursday's Book Character Parade and November 15th's Family Movie Night!

I hope this edition finds your week going well and, as always, thank you very much for your active participation and support. See you at the Book Character Parade Thursday at 2:00 pm!

In Tiger Pride,

Proud Principal
