We are half way there!!
Goodness me! We are officially half way through the school year. We have had so much fun watching your children laugh, learn, and grow. This is a lllooooooonnnnnngggggg weekend and we hope you enjoy every minute. Sleep in, enjoy your days off on Friday and Monday. Technically Friday is a Personal Learning Day so please ensure that your work is being completed & turned in. If you have any questions please email teachers directly.
For parents dropping off for Athletics this weekend, please be aware that the parking lot closest to 71 (bus lot) will be closed this Friday - Monday, due to Construction. Speaking of construction, we are still on schedule and moving toward completion of the building. You can see the Brick facade is up on the new auditorium and painting classrooms has begun. If you'd like to check out the new space please view the video below.

Teacher Requested Family Teacher Conferences
We have a second round of Family/Teacher Conferences in February. These are teacher scheduled conferences (invite only). The teachers will individually reach out to the families of students they feel that a meeting would help with student achievement. A link will not be sent out for families to schedule a meeting; however, if a family has specific questions or concerns, they are always encouraged to reach out to the teacher at any point in the school year.
